We've had a problems in the past with bots signing up a zillion accounts just to fill the profiles with spam links, so I'd guess it's that. The idea is that search engine crawlers will see the links in the profiles and it'll bump up the linked site's search engine ranking.

I'm pretty sure I adjusted the forum software so that search engine bots can't view user profiles the last time this happened, just out of spite.
