Please keep the following things in mind:
Spam-Flags are only suitable for single spam postsonly suitable for single spam posts. Please always check the whole account, and if there are more then one spam answers/questions, flag one for
Moderator Attention, either requesting deletion of the account or manual cleanup (via the mods) of all answers (good practice is to offer coffee or donuts as bribe).
- Not all spammers are obvious, some are hiding behind URL-Shorteners and redirects. Also keep an eye out for
Ad-Spammers. I've written a GreaseMonkey Script which will display some of the better known Ad-Providers in a small info field when visiting the site.
Ad-Spammers do also need to be flagged.
- Another possible help for the hunt is the Web Of Trust, which will display user-ratings of the visited page.
