No one disputed there are a lot of sincere comments and anyone can see them, as well as anyone can smell the shamelessly-trying-to-self-promote ones. The actual trouble with the proposed solution is that it only affects that person’s comment on one item, like a tiny slap on the wrist, after which they can continue doing their thing with other authors. Is there a “strike” system for such things? I mean, if I then X then Y report one person for such a thing, will there be any form of official action toward that person?

I think the following is fairly self-explanatory and sufficient:

“You must not use the forums, item comments or any contact forms on Envato sites for unsolicited advertising of your items or any other conduct that could be considered spamming. Spamming will result in restricted access to the forums and account disablement.”

So to clarify, if you have had anything of the sort happening on your items, and believe it falls under the above description, simply flag the comment, as Travis said, and state the reason for flagging it.

Thanks.
