This is actually very scary, strange no-one picked this up before, or just ignored it.

Thanks, Philipp. We've been taking these down as we find them for a while now. We must have fell behind a bit in the battle over the holidays, but very glad that we can get back in the fight.

The spamer is stupid. Though not public system could be immute from spammers, however, it is quite easy for the visitors to report and the admin to remove the spam, as the visitors of google code are all computer literate, and they won't click on the spam ad.
