Didn't really know where to put this thread, will start here and see how we go

I run a web based promotional products buisness in which I receive email enquiries for product quotes through a message box link on my website. Recently I received an email from the site from "Valintino Guxxi" simply saying "Hello, Your site is great. Regards, Valintino Guxxi". Thought it was a little odd this person not actually asking for any information, so I googled "Valintino Guxxi" and half a million pages pop up in which the same person has left the same message on websites all over the world.

This leaves me with an impending feeling of virussy-wormy-trojan doom. I've done the standard spyware/virus checks and removed a couple of minors, but i'm unsure whether they were related at all to this.

Does any one know anything about this Valintino Guxxi?

Don't know about the particular "person", but I have received similar emails from someone filling out my quote form on my web site. Plan on putting in Captcha or something similar soon to ensure it is a person and not a 'bot that fills out the form. More then likely is is someone who is trying to get a high listing in the SEs for whatever reason.

I did a search on several of ones I received and they, too, were listed all over the place.
