Blatant astroturf - user has registered with an email account from the facebook business he's linked to.

Epic fail.

Chap's a clown.

(No, really. He runs a clown business, posted picture on Facebook and a spam link here).

Back to reality, we ban a good number of people every week. Sometimes we ban people before they even post - we get warnings based on lots of variables. Sometimes we ban and remove posts in a matter of minutes - even seconds.

There are spammers everywhere.

It does exist, there's a photo on his own business Facebook page which he linked here pretending to be someone who just found the image (hence the astroturfing reference).
