    Hi - moved out of the RC.

    It's all been dealt with - all gone

    though they or someone remarkably like them will unfortunately be back

    Best thing to do with spam is report it just as you did - no need to post a thread in the RC

    Ok, just posted, because I saw multiple posts around and did not wish to report so many posts one by one.

    That's cool - I'd not worry too much about how many you report ,though I do always check a users profile if I banned them for spam.

    Thanks for the report

    there's been more from other users in the short time since you posted this - a plague but nothing we can do ... if we get to them quick enough they are not indexed for long - best we can hope for I guess.

    Keep up the good moderation.

    One of the unpleasant aspects of having a community is cases like these.
