I have encountered this spam account that seems to be only be used to promote a business. Can the account be suspended?

We got it. Thanks for the heads up.

For the record, the flagging system is a bit more effective than a meta post; flag it at spam and you can move on. My understanding is all it takes is a few flags before the account is punish the account system wide. SE is pretty proactive about spam.

You flag it and either a mod or the system will take care of them.

  • Late comment, but this isn't entirely true. In fact, if an account's post gets deleted as spam, then 100 rep is deducted from it and the account goes to a black list, but only on the community the spam was posted on.
