Just a list of yescrowd spammers with the links to their spam posts. This is not a full list but just some of of the posts from the last few months that are still here at time of writing this post.
Note all the various tactics the spammers use, ranging from the lazy to very sneaky, and from one-offs to dedicated spammers.
Most spammers seem to edit their post within a day (no doubt to add the span links then), and some wait even longer.

I'm sure they will. They seem to have removed most of the ones I have formally reported in the past, but I know of at least one I've had to report twice before it got removed.
I deliberately haven't reported these so that hopefully they don't get deleted before people (at least the regulars) get a chance to take a look at them an learn if they are interested.
Thanks heaps, YetAnotherAcc.
I have removed those posts and banned those users.
@Kartika @Aron_YC @z_hook @Sarah_YC
Please keep a close look out for these type of posts containing spam links and take the required action.
Thanks heaps, YetAnotherAcc.
You're welcome. I was originally going to just flag them as usual but I figured that this would be more useful.
Ray, can you check the yescrowd email as I sent something addressed to Alistar on Wednesday which Optus should look at.
Thanks @YetAnotherAcc, I have notified Ray about the email you have sent.
I can confirm the e-mail has been received and the issue raised is being investigated and changes tested.
User PAULY2468's post today regarding OPTUS CENTREPAY has been deleted. Was their post deleted because of its original content, or did they edit it to something that needed to be deleted?
1) There are two new tactics being used by spammes.
2) Should I even bother reporting spammers (using the report feature) any more given that there are at least two post that I reported in the past week that are still there. This is certainly not the first time I have noticed this, and I'm not even keeping track of the ones I report, these are ones that I have stumbled across again.
