As stated several times before that spammer is a perpetual problem and we are doing everything we can to block them. We've deleted dozens of usernames but they keep posting under different usernames. We've attempted to ban their IP address and that doesn't work either. The comments appear on the stream without my knowledge. I delete them when I see them but I'm not on the computer 24/7 so some slip through the cracks. I understand it's annoying but I'm doing the best I can to prevent the spam.
