If you remove their account, there's a good chance they will just create it again, possible on a different IP. Yesterday someone spammed the blog with over 10 accounts.

For those who report user name accounts, don't bother.
The name you reported were actually already dealt with for hours before you even posted. Reporting names in a topic don't help.

As with any spam, if you find a problematic post in the forums, please do a report clicking the triangle in the top right of any post.

This is the best report you can do.

No let up in sight. After about 90 mins, I got almost 50 spam emails.

Tried it, got three tutspams before being able to finish this post. Hope it kicks in soon, i'm around 300 deep. Ah. Another two. Jeez louise.
Everybody got to come out of the closet... does that mean I'm allowed to come out of the corner? Is that even funny anymore? Do parents still make their kids stand in corners when they mouth off?? These are the questions that keep me out of the really good schools.

i'm setting up filters for individual users eg: auto delete all emails with the subject line 'strhrthrth has published a new English tutorial! - Scirra.com' this will stop some emails coming in.

It seems like not everyone is paying attention to what user's experience on unsubscribing has been.To repeat: unsubscribing from Tutorial does NOT work, does NOT work, does NOT work!
