Get rid of this spammer?

I received this PM today from member "jessie"

I saw I had a pm here today when I opened my email, wondered, "What would someone around saablink want to contact me for?", read it, and used my ultra honed spam determining skills to make the conclusion that it was spam. Now, I'm not hating on buddhism, but I'd rather not be bothered with spam messages about it.

Sorry if this isn't supposed to go here, I don't frequent this forum enough to know.

The message went as follows-
"Hi,
I'm new here, how's it going?

"Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: it transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural & spiritual, and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things as a meaningful unity" - Albert Einstein"

Ham, you have a VW. You are very close to being a spammer yourself.

Also, I believe "Jessie" was taken car of weeks ago.

That is the oddest kind of spam I have ever seen.

I just got another one.

Maybe they're pissed because I'm asking for them to be removed or to stop sending them or something.

Is everyone's coming with the subject "re: (insert username here)"?

I know, I know, I don't own any swedish goodness, so I don't have much business around here.

I wonder if it's the same person who was doing it last time. I didn't get one this time around. I'm not special?

Thank you, sir! Saab people rock!

Also, griffingear makes me want a c900 even more. I've always had a thing for c900s and 9000s, but other cars have taken priority. JK's spg was so fun to watch and listen to when he was autocrossing it.

I just got a nearly identical one about scientology from someone named "blaque". Can you take care of that, too?
