What about the links? If a message with URLs to the spammer's site is reported and removed, isn't it possible to block all messages with the same URL, and automatically suspend the user account after a certain number of attempts?
Another question - are there published lists of spammer URLs that you can use to block messages? Something like this, perhaps? http://www.stopforumspam.com/[^]
First I tried it, and the page wouldn't load when I told it to sign in. Then I tried again and it gave me this error:
Something bad happened

If a member posts spam or abusive content, then members can report his account. If 5 members report his account, then his account will be closed.
My friend account
I don't know about which member you speak, so I don't know whether he posted spam or abusive content. If you can give his member name, then perhaps I can tell you whether he posted spam or abusive content.
In some cases, my signature will be longer then my message...
I just got -16 points on a message in the soapbox. How did that happen with voting turned off?
