Might be worth mentioning him/her/they in the 'spam reporting thread'.
I've been going through the "members flagged as spam" thing when I start my day, so I probably just zapped 'im. I check in on that page on average twice a day and clear it out, so for commercial spammers, just flag their profiles and I'll get them :-)
awesome, thank you. Is it ok to leave a comment linking them to the spam post/comment like I did with that individual?
Sure, definitely helps in cases where it's not immediately obvious from the profile itself!
It's annoying when they're smart enough to turn the comment field off.....
I think there should be a rule that if you turn off comments, you lose the ability to comment on other folks' profiles.
*shrug* While I can understand what you;re saying, the same thing happens in the blog and forum communities. Support tickets too. You have no idea how many I receive with no method of returning a message to them. Then they get pissed publicly when they don't hear back from you....
