It seems the spam is coming from just a few accounts and I wouldn't be surprised if the posts are automated. You might make things easier for yourself by making a "stealth ban" option where you prohibit the account from posting any articles, tips, or blogs. The account holder won't know anything about it. The site will just swallow anything it posts.
Another option is to flag (ie., notify a responsible person) postings with lots of unicode in their title since it's one thing all of this spam has in common and is rarely seen in legitimate posts.
