Spammers infesting itchio!

Me and many other devs are getting spam posts from newly registered users like this one:

their accounts seems to be banned but the spam posts remains, I think it's time to auto-delete posts from suspended users and also maybe block newly registered users from posting links?

Can you please report posts like this when you see them? That we will definitely see them and update our spam rules accordingly.

Thanks

Cool will do that

Thanks, I also banned and purged the account you linked from the entire site.

The issue is still there, people just keep registering new usernames. As I posted on twitter, today woke up like this:

and that of course is not good, that user was already suspended - why not automatically delete all posts from an user who gets suspended by spam? I get stuff like this 2-3 times a day and it's making the site unusable. I may have to disable comments on all my games if it continues like this...
