Default Lots Of Spamming On The Forums Going On

I get email updates when something is posted in select threads because I like to be quick to help if I am available. I also get a nightly update of new threads. For three days I have been reporting new profiles just spamming the heck of the forums. It's making it impossible to determine who needs help and what is spam.

I will post a pic of one screen shot I just took. Nine of the most recent posts in the KFHD 8.9 Q&A thread, all back to back. All the same asker, all the same responder who responded to nothing else. Posts in wrong areas, posts about nothing to do with tablets or even electronics, reviews about what ever from places I never heard of and so on.

There is either a spam problem or some bots running around. I won't continue to get auto updates to my email if most of them are just going to be spam.

Moderators can lock the posts. Probably delete or move them if they are off topic. If the user is showing nothing but spam, they should be able to lock the account.
