Just noticed this user. Been spamming YouTube links randomly into a particular question with the message "FOREVER BABY". Just joined today. Looks like this account should be suspended for spamming with absolutely no contributions.

    @Mysticial: They should be banned from reviewing suggested edits FOREVER BABY. – animuson Jan 24 '13 at 22:44
  • @animuson: Agreed. – Linuxios Jan 24 '13 at 22:45

    @Linuxios Waste of time. I just destroyed the account. – NullUserException อ_อ Jan 24 '13 at 22:47
  • The user doesn't even have any posts to flag and get a moderators attention, though I'm sure this post will suffice. – Jack Jan 24 '13 at 22:47

    I'd totally approve it if it were Hello!, but this is just ridiculous. (I kid! I kid! Please don't go all Lionel on the site) – Tim Post Jan 25 '13 at 1:54
  • @TimPost: :). +1. – Linuxios Jan 25 '13 at 2:00

    To close voters: the issue was fixed, not no longer reproducible. That close reason is intended for ephemeral issues that resolve themselves after a short while, not for actual bugs that are later marked completed. The status-completed tag is enough. – Sonic the Reinstate Monica-hog Aug 18 at 6:13
  • @SonictheAnonymousWizHog The actual reason I flagged this was not because it was no longer reproducible, but because it was specific to one site. – pppery Aug 18 at 13:48
  • A migration to Meta.SO would probably be in order – Linuxios Aug 18 at 13:54
  • @Linuxios This question is too old to be migrated. – pppery Aug 18 at 14:55
  • Good point @pppery – Linuxios Aug 18 at 15:00
  • Voted to leave closed only because it is no longer relevant to Meta SE. – hat Aug 20 at 5:30

    how does "taunt user" work? – prusswan Jan 25 '13 at 3:34

    @prusswan Suspends the user, and sends a mod message with one of the following: "Quit hitting yourself! Quit hitting yourself!", "I know you are, but what am I?", or "Your mom goes to college." – Josh Darnell Jan 25 '13 at 3:49

    I thought the options in the second screen shot did not exist. I'll have to find links. I'm thinking you just posted something you weren't supposed to. ;) – Andrew Barber Jan 25 '13 at 3:55

    @AndrewBarber The screen shot doesn't show even more seekrit options, like instantly sending users Chinese finger traps. – Tim Post Jan 25 '13 at 3:59
