    They have been, If you ever look up on the profile of these people (I use the term people loosely) you will see that some of them will dump hundreds of spam in a very short time. OL has been diligent in their efforts to remove them. It would help if everyone would click on the report box on every spam you see. That way they can isolate and remove it. I also give them a -1 as I see them.

      The OL guys are doing a good job of getting rid of them once you hit the report button. Like Bo said, I usually give them a -1 first--I don't know if that makes a difference but I do it anyway. I clicked the -1 on one and it disappeared before I could report it--someone else must have already reported it. In OL's defense, it's hard to filter out all the spam ahead of time without catching some legitimate comments. Some guys put links to some good in their comments--an agressive spam filter might catch that by mistake. I guess we have to live with a little bit of the garbage.

        Bo hit the nail on the head. If you need a spammer, please click the report button.

        Sorry for the inconvenience, we're currently looking into ways to stop the spammer yet not inconvenience the real users at the same time.

          I give the spammers a -1 and hit the report 'button', too. OL has been good on the spammer reports. I hit the report button one day and the spammer was gone in a couple of minutes.
          For now all we can do is keep hitting the report button. In the mean time we can make fun of them, they usually have some funny sounding name.
