This guy seems to be scraping and translating news from coindesk, either that or he has botted the process: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=156259;sa=showPosts .
Seems to be posting only in press section of the board. Has had over 13 posts.
Just wanted to bring this to mods' attention(well local mods and Global mods anyway)

Legendary

Each block is stacked on top of the previous one. Adding another block to the top makes all lower blocks more difficult to remove: there is more "weight" above each block. A transaction in a block 6 blocks deep (6 confirmations) will be very difficult to remove.

The global and other moderators can't really do anything about this unless they know Chinese. Posting properly translated content in local sections is allowed as far as I know. You could contact one of the local moderators there and check with them. They should know if the account is using a bot to translate and post. In that case it would be disallowed due to being badly translated (and/or being spam).

That is true , but considering he has a signature and the fact that he is essentially spamming in the same section, i.e by creating a new thread everytime there is a new news on coindesk, I feel the guy should be banned. Thanks for your advice, contacting the(only) Chinese board moderator.

Could you contact him yourself, my newbie limits ... well that should explain it.

It also seems that only 3 people actually start threads there: btcshop, nextblast and So perfect, they are literally the only people who are posting things there and all of them have the bitmixer signature so..

... they could still do good translations and thus constructive and helpful posts.

Hmm.. I read a few of his posts and they seem coherent Chinese to me as a native-level speaker, not something translated via a bot. That account is actually reposting news from external sites (http://www.bitecoin.com/online/2015/11/16131.html as an example of the newest post). Not sure if that's a bannable offense with the newest policies though.

I think he is just reposting for the locals. if he posted it else where and claimed the articles as his to his own site then that would be an issue.
I suppose he added his idea to his posts so this leaves an impression that he wanted people to discuss over.

Thanks for your opinion but I find it hard to believe that he can post two threads in under two minutes without using a bot, but I could be wrong ofc. Wouldn't this still be a case of sig spamming?Lastly, is it the same with :

Forget what I said about the second guy, he's defo a botted account, just scrapes off the words from : http://forex.cngold.org/ which is a chinese news site. Hope he's banned soon for botting and sig spamming.

Trolls, probably not, signature spammers? For sure. About the point that John was talking about, that its in native chinese, some googling and it turns out that many sites are translating these stuff and posting in their website, thats probably where the spammer is scraping the posts from. For ex: http://www.bitecoin.com/online/2015/11/16182.html is a copy of what the spammer has been posting some other results are: Results

Why aren't they banned yet if it is known what they are doing?
Isn't there a Chinese moderator or one that can use a translator on the foreign posts to see what is happening?

It is not so simple, at the first glance he is not spamming with totally useless posts. And  as far as I can tell translated news can be helpful for Chinese community.
It is up to someone who is fluent in Chinese and English to decide if these posts are good and not spamming fest.

Plus no one from the chinese local forum seems to respond or discuss any of those news because they, most likey, dont care at all about them.
