    The staff won't discuss the steps they take in public because that helps the spammers work around them. But accounts like this are of course banned at the same time the spam is deleted. IP banning assumes that the person/bot uses a static IP address, which if I were in that business I wouldn't do precisely because it would make it easy to block me.
