Clicky. Third comment.

 

Also, I'm never sure what's the proper way GameDev wants spam to be reported. Do I send PMs to a specific staff member, post in CSI, or just ignore it? The "Report this member" button never works for me.


It's perfectly fine to abbreviate my username to 'Servant' rather than copy+pasting it all the time.

Yep. Testing it on you right now gives me this message: "You do not have permission to report the item you are attempting to report."

 

I take it by your reaction that the button works for you? The user who posted the spam message doesn't have a hyperlinked username either (the profile was probably already deleted), so I'd have to find his profile manually even if I could report him.

No, I was just surprised it didn't work. I used it long long time ago and it did work then.
