Since it's banned, do those who circumvent it by short-URLs deserve a spam-flag?

No. They aren't spam. Downvote them and/or flag for moderator attention explaining what they are; a mod can delete them and take any further action that may be necessary in case of repeated abuse.

Edit: The above assumes that the link is an answer. If it's a comment, you obviously can't downvote and there are no distinct flag reasons, so just flag it. One of the reasons for flagging a comment is "noise" and lmgtfy comments are definitely noise.

  • I wouldn't even downvote them. If you flag them they'll get removed anyway. Commented Sep 14, 2010 at 17:16
