    rather than downvote, it's more effective to flag a spam post for moderator attention. it only requires reputation of 15, and the moderators are very quick taking care of such problems. – barbara beeton Apr 21 '14 at 17:47

  • Indeed, as @barbarabeeton says flagging is the best plan: there is some 'back end' stuff which 'learns' from such flags. – Joseph Wright Apr 21 '14 at 19:27
