Who did you get spammed by? The crazy one that's all over the rain this past 2 days?  I don't even want to say the name or they'll show up here too. I've reported a ton of his/her comments and I hope  staff zaps this kook soon.

 

Just went and took a look. It is the same crazy kook.

I think everyone above has covered the bases. I had a similar thing happening WordPress blog. I had to disable comments to keep spammers from attaching their dribble to it.

Typically I hit report.  Hopefully AR Support will "find" the offending party and delete the comment and member if necessary.  If for some reason the comment remains or is overly offensive -- I may delete it myself.

How ironic they spammed a post about spammers and scammers!  Anyway, once it is reported, I'm sure A/R will dispatch a solution at some point.  In the meantime, perhaps you can disable comments, at least temporarily?  That's all I have.
