You have discovered a bug in our forum software. This thread had a spam post back in 2018 which included that spam link as a trackback link. Even though the spam post was removed the trackback link remained in the thread. I have disabled the outgoing trackback feature. I don't think anyone uses this now anyway. The spam link is now gone when you try to post a reply.

Great catch! Thanks!
