How to incorporate a Google forum into blog?

Once I saw a thread in Old BHF:How Do I? I advised to use Google groups. Now extending this idea, The forum can be embedded inside your blog pages/posts/widgets etc., All you need to do is Create a Google Forum.
  1. After creating, copy the below code,
    <iframe id="forum_embed"
            src="javascript:void(0)"
            scrolling="no"
            frameborder="0"
            width="600"
            height="700"><br />
    </iframe><br />
    <br />
    <script type="text/javascript">
      document.getElementById("forum_embed").src =
          "https://groups.google.com/forum/embed/?place=forum/thetroubleshooters" +         
          "&showsearch=true&showpopout=true&parenturl=" +
          encodeURIComponent(window.location.href);
    </script>
  2. In the above code replace thetroubleshooters with your forum's link name.
  3. My forum's link is :
    https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/thetroubleshooters.
  4. Here the red colored thetroubleshooters is my forum's link name.
  5. Just find yours and replace it with mine.
  6. So, my forum is embedded in my blog here : http://www.krishnainfotron.x10.mx/p/comments.html#start.

Meet a spammer

Let me start by a warning, This blogpost has nothing to do with howtoblog and is a story of a spammer.

Years ago we had to face a spammer in the forum(Probably during Pistachio?) who was very persistent. He was a link dropping spammer who kept sharing his blog URL under every reply in the forum and somewhere to his blogposts which merely had instructions from Blogger Help Centre.

It went as,

HIS NAME
HIS BLOG URL Probably it was so difficult for TCs to make him go away as I happened to see him for months, spamming in the forum and one fine day he disappeared and never returned.

I happened to find him and interview him which I am writing down here,
