I'm killing them as fast as I can! But one of them has managed to create an account I can't deal with, so I'll be raising an issue with Atlassian...
Once you reach a certain level of karma, you can use a "report" option to complain.
Once you reach a much higher level of karma, you get the option to go to the user's profile and ban them, which shuts down the account and hides their rubbish.
Eva - yes, I'd like to see filtering be a little more aggressive - we must have killed several thousand similar spams recently. Keep going with the karma though, when it's high enough, you'll be able to ban as well.
Norman - how did you get there? When I clicked on the link to the users profile, I either got thrown back to where I came from, or a 500 page. Well done, and thank you for killing the account!
This is definitely a problem, especially since they are posting left-to-right spam messages (about fridges) - one of the fields in Answers is not UTF-8 compatible, which causes 500 errors on the site. Anyway, I want to let you know that I'm aware of this problem and working on fixing it upstream, by adding anti-spam mechanisms to Atlassian ID. In the meantime, please be so kind to continue to ban them, I'll look into restricting character sets.
