No need for a "report spam button" - just let one of the moderators know what's going on. This person posted at 2am our time (with some more at 6am), which is hardly a time someone here would hit the big red button.

We have stuff in place to prevent this happening - blocking somes countries from sending private messaging, filtering words, etc. It just happens now and then since a system like this is not 100% perfect.

If it happens just let us know.
