Thank you.

Apparently google didn't index it yet. I made a search on gmane and
reported the three instances as spam there as well. (But I believe
there are also other sites collecting emails from our Trac.) It only
found these three comments submitted under this email and I found the
email listed under www dot stopforumspam dot com (Bangladesh).

There's something I find particularly cute about that spam though.

It was promoting windows crapware to deal with long filenames as the answer to
    New port version fails to uninstall ports: '": file name too long'
That deserves bonus points ;)
