Spam Messages in Photo Comments

Check this out (the comments):

Not just appearing in that photo, however. The spam is literally posted everywhere in photo comments.

I have reported it to the relevant crew, thanks. In the future, you can always click the red flag at the top of the comment to report the content. We're constantly barraged with those exact spam comments here on the forum side, but because the first posts a user creates requires our approval, we always catch it before the posts go live. I don't know if there's a similar process on the photo comments side, but if there isn't, it might be something we need to look into.

I've flagged the spam comments on it a few hours ago now. Prime air photo has the same junk on it.

Admins/Crew: Photo IDs 5455849 and 5454241 both have spam comments on them which I have flagged three times now and still no removal (in the DB over a month now). Can you take care of this, please?
