Spam comments


How are we supposed to handle spam comments that might appear on our blog? Obviously we can just delete them, but if someone has created an account for the purpose of spamming, I assume someone should be notified. There is the "mark as offensive" link, which kind of sounds like it was intended for a different concern, but maybe it can serve this purpose too. Does anybody know?

Mark as offensive is the correct one. Spam, harsh words etc.

Flag them and/or delete them.  I check the spam queue 3 or 4 times a day and close spammer accounts and delete their messages.
