It depends on courses to courses.
Indeed, it all depends . . .
Looks like you're catching up on some old threads. Let us know when you make it to 2016.
Ummm, I think you already said that. Let me help you out. Once you post a few nothing messages you're supposed to put a spam link in your sig line so it shows up in all your posts. Please try to stay on schedule.
You could of course try posting a link in the same colour background the forum has. Invisible to everyone except Google. Here's a sample.

Yeah, we've seen it. Usually we check but I'm sure some have slipped through. If you ban the spammer early in the game it's relatively easy to just delete all their posts. Usually we save at least one in the spam folder so that we can potentially find patterns of abuse - spammers coming from the same ip address/area, etc. Mostly it just feels like an annoying little game.
I'm not an SEO expert, but my understanding is that Google is smart enough to know when a link is the same color as its background and discounts it accordingly.
In the words of navitasharma, it depends on websites to websites.
