Since it's not possible to report spam for comments, only for questions and answers, this question is meant as a wiki where obvious spam accounts can be reported.

Please only report obvious spam accounts

Moderators: Please review the activity by the reported accounts, block them if you find them to be spam accounts, remove their spam comments, and remove them from this list.

You certainly can report spam comments.

Simply copy the URL of the spammers profile and click on "give feedback" at the bottom of the page here on TJC. Paste the offending URL and click send.

But where does that 'feedback' end up?

We need a "flag offensive"-Feature for comments.

What you are missing here is, the list of spammers you've given, have left absolutely NO SPAM on any pages, meaning that there is little to no point in removing the profile - these are not my words, but words that were returned to me when I contacted Jolla, in other words, these accounts are plenty but are not causing any realistic problem within the forum.

Having said the above, I am in agreement with your sentiment and personally I'd like to see all spammers removed, hunted down and killed and their parents fined for producing such assholes, but hey, I'd love a date with Heidi Klum, but neither of us are getting what we want! :D

As pointed out by @Acarm, use the give feedback link to report SPAM directly to Jolla 'together' staff.

@nthn, where do you think the feedback ends up?, in the hands of admin who run and watch this forum, who else?,........I tend to find that admin does indeed delete accounts that are actively posting crap in our questions/comments.....so please, get copying and pasting every time you come across spam from MORONS!. . . . as per my answer given here; https://together.jolla.com/question/143032/tjc-how-should-we-report-comment-spam/

@Edz Not sure how you mean. Didn't you see the spam comments for each of the accounts above? Just go to their user pages and check out the activity. Typically it's just nonsense comments links to some advertised website.

IMO it's more transparent to collect spam comment producers here instead of using the "give feedback" link. People can easily see what accounts have already been reported, so they don't have to do it again and again (I probably also would forget which I reported already if I didn't add it here). Or another way to put it: more "do it together".
