Could someone please do the honours?

Maybe it's just me, but this new user looks like a spam problem just waiting to happen, going by it's homepage URL...

np: Yoko Kanno - Player (ft. Origa With Heartsdales) (Ghost In The Shell Stand Alone Complex Solid State Society OST)

...Is it wrong to kinda want to see someone banned just for having an emoticon in their username?

Briareos seems to be referring to the website "teenproblem.net" listed as the user's homepage, not the : D in the username. Even so, for all we know this user may actually manger that website. No spammy posts yet anyway.

Other than using an email adress as a name (which is a possible sign of an automated account), I see nothing wrong. Besides, the email adress looks like a real name and not something generated.

He even has CaravelNet, as indicated by the High Scores link. I think this account was simply created to get CaravelNet (which does require an account to be linked to).

blah. You don't need another account. You can use the old one. Besides, what about the PM? Here is a screenshot of it!

I find the filename of your screenshot a lot more offensive than the PM in question.

Looks like he waited a while before spamming. Registered over a month ago, but has had no activity besides this post.

That one is just the homepage and the signature that are spam. I think that the posts can be left there (although they are pointless necros).

I don't know about this guy, but he posted three times in a row within five minutes of each other. Two of them tell about how darn easy it is to kill the adder, and the third one asks where the hand bomb is.

There's something else. In his third post, he spells everything correctly and uses proper grammar. However, in his first two posts, he spells many things incorrectly and does not use proper grammar. I have a thought that his younger brother or son got on to his account. Or maybe it's possible that a translation site translated his third post's words extremely well and added punctuation and grammar as a bonus.
