I am finding and reporting a lot of sig spammers+ account farmers who are just posting for increasing their post count. For some reason, even after I report them I do not get a reply, possibly because they are busy, except in case of EAL and Mitchell. Hence, I'll be no longer report them, rather bump this post with every new member I find to be either breaking the rules or obviously spamming.

To start it off,
1) This guy: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=513936 is just spam posting for gaining his potential activity
2) Yobit spammer: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=224475
3) This guy: Ntoskrnl is bumping his thread more than 2 times per day , reported to Cyrus but still no action has been taken. P.S: He is doing so by deleting his previous bump and bumping again. I also warned him:
Don't repeatedly bump your thread more than once per 24 hrs, you risk being banned.


What do you think?Mods and admins are always free?
No they are not,It's a good thing that you reported and just wait for thier decision and action instead of creating thread in meta.
There are already various threads in meta about spammers.
When you guys have Report button feature then why to create a thead? just wait and report again after some time if no action is taken.
I think I made myself clear here

It has been such for a week probably since I got a reply from hilarious(only he can ban these members, being a Global Mod), and I'm not talking about admins here, these are either rule-breakers or obvious spammers. And if he has plenty of time to post IIRC.

As above, you don't need to spam mods (or innevitably this thread) every time you spot a spammer (of which there are hundreds) and that's what the report to mod button is for. 9/10 I'm already aware of them anyway. Also I can only issue perma bans not temp so it's useless as I can't do anything but pass the info on.

This problem will only worsen with the increase in Bitcoin's price.

Also I can only issue perma bans not temp so it's useless as I can't do anything but pass the info on.

Isn't that counterintuitive? I would have thought perma-bans would be in the hands of the admins, while normal bans could be administered by global moderators.
Changing this could also be a solution.
