Reporting every single one actually makes more work for the mods if I remember what Kao said. Cause he has to go through and not only clean up every thread, but go close every report made. I think he said that once the account was banned the reports didn't clear.

The report system basically makes a list of links to reported threads. The more people report that thread, the more links it makes. Banning someone just takes the one link though. once we have a report that shows someone that needs banned, we generally then remove the entire post tree from their user account if they spam topics. If they just spam posts banning them pretty much makes them dissappear silently. Reporting every post they make is indeed just making more work for us to undo later.
