I don't think we should remove links merely because they have some
spam in their forums.  Spam is a problem we all need to deal with.
The question should not be whether they have spam, but whether they
are providing a service for our users.  From what I can see,
openoffice-forum.de had a recent burst of spam, but they've also had
valid and useful discussions related to OpenOffice support.  So I
would not support removing them.

Remember, if we want to make spam a criterion for removing links to a
service, then we'd need to remove our own Bugzilla bugtracking
instance, for hosting over 1000 spam attachments:
