    And an alternate route which works for security.blogoverflow.com is to tell the mods in the security chat room. – Ro-Reinstate Monic-Alsop Jun 10 '13 at 17:29

There should be a requirement to log in with a Stack Exchange account, and/or add flag buttons next to the posts. Or run the comments through Akismet.
