There is an user that continue to vandalize posts. He hasn't enough reputation to modify posts, but he's still trying to do it(I've reject at least 3 suggested edits for vandalism in the last few minutes).

He has never post an answer nor a question, so I can't flag none of it's post in order to signal his troll-like behavior to moderators.

It's not a big problem, but it's quite annoying.

How should we behave in this or similar cases? How can we notify moderators about that?

    If enough of his edits get rejected, the system will automatically ban him from editing. – hammar May 10 '13 at 21:23
  • @hammar: good to know. I didn't know about that. – Heisenbug May 10 '13 at 21:24

You can flag for moderator attention one of the posts where you've rejected an edit, choose other, and explain the situation.

    A link to a rejected edit would help. – user1228 May 10 '13 at 21:26
  • @Bart I suspect it wasn't included to avoid exposing the user. – Aaron Bertrand May 10 '13 at 21:27
  • @AaronBertrand Meh, given the overall contributions...but deleted. Won't can still see it though. – Bart May 10 '13 at 21:28

    If you are going to fix it @won't would you mind review banning everyone who approved those edits..? – ben is uǝq backwards May 10 '13 at 21:28

    There was one approver of those edits... – Jason Sturges May 10 '13 at 21:29
  • @Bart true, but I think it is a good policy in general to not expose users when practical, regardless of their contributions. Not that it is hard to go figure out who they are probably talking about... – Aaron Bertrand May 10 '13 at 21:29
  • @AaronBertrand Yep, fair enough – Bart May 10 '13 at 21:30

    @benisuqbackwards: Only one guy I saw approved. Twice. He's review banned for a month now. And the editor is now the former editor. Poof. – user1228 May 10 '13 at 21:50
