Does anyone have any experience with reporting inappropriate comments? There's a particular spam user, Olivia Ruiz, that's left some nasty stuff on forums that definitely should be taken down, but I haven't seen action taken yet.

Hi Matt,

 

I used once, it just sends your message to moderators. Have no idea is it a link on concrete post within the final message or not, but it works - the post in question was deleted and moderator (don't remember who exactly) informed me about that in private message.

Aaand they're gone! Thanks Microsoft!

We try to take action as quickly as possible - sorry for any delay on this one - I believe it was posted over the holiday, so it took a little longer for us to take action.
