The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
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.

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Actually no, I chose my pen name from the two atomic bombs, fat man and little boy. Plus fat boy is an affectionate name in Cantoneese (my wife lived there many years and speaks it fluently. SOmething like 'faizai', at least that is how it sounds to me. ) I am not particularly overweight, for a 50+ year old programmer at least!
