There's a lot of moderation tools here at SE. Privileges and authority are staggered differently on different SE sites. It seems though that most tools and options are only directed towards posts and rarely (if ever) directed towards users.
Take for instance a post, just now:
according to the privileges explanations:
When should I delete questions?
Closed questions that are of no lasting value whatsoever should be flagged and deleted.
Looking at the account of the user who posted this though:
it's pretty clear that the account is just solely made up to spam. There doesn't seem to be any tools though to take care of these kind of accounts.
Am I missing anything?
If I'm not missing anything shouldn't there be some sort of tool to take care of this sort of thing?
Half an hour later:
same user, same junk
If there were tools for moderators to take care of this kind of stuff - this could have been avoided.
and again later:
I have already edited this post twice since the first spam - but couldn't do anything to prevent it...
