Admin Post - Causes and SPAMbots

Seems that we're on an upswing of the stupid lately. This week, I received comments to posts made over several years (including one lamenting a good friend's death), all linking to a video in Portuguese made by "Joseestevestv" SPAMing multiple communities. I don't want to know what it's about, nor do I care.

As admin of this and several other groups, I banned LJ Users:
Paraxzides
neghmfly49
fretwellelu
mouldongyt
added:
sanchysee5,
nutthapanc,
algernyc


These accounts are likely SPAMbot accounts but I wanted their IDs to be public knowledge.
I am recommending all other admins and mods ban these accounts.

In addition, I'm contacting YouTube to let them know about this.
