When I notice what looks like a spamming bot or member I use the report button and describe briefly what he is doing, and the member and posts disspear a little while after

As spam-bots go, he's relatively harmless. At least he's spamming RC stuff that members might actually be interested in. Better the devil you know, and all that.

Yeah tbh if I check a reported thread and it's not even vaguely R/C related, its a ban.

Occasionally we get one like this where it appears to be spam, but it's also stuff people might want to buy?
