I tried to search for accounts like that but can't find accounts with 0 posts with any of our searches. For new ones, I recognize the ones putting the links in private messages (mostly on their own profile) and ban them, but can't figure out how to find and ban the others.

Btw, it is real fun, to see some 0-post-users i banned weeks ago return every few days, trying to create new threads or post and then getting 'access denied'. These must be bots. No human can be so stupid to try it again day after day ...
