How do you mark SPAM in blogs?

How can you mark/report spam blog post, when you see it?

I really wonder, why there is no option in posts to mark it as a spam. We have options to share, to email to friend ....

Why do I ask this question? Well, I just opened new article "Seo" from another member (don't want to name), who has of course no uploads, no purchases, just a message post .... and this is clearly SPAM. A few words, someone else's picture and link to outside website. Of course, I didn't like it, so I wanted to report it. But how?
Then I wondered, will admins take it down, once they read it or will it stay on or is there a way to report it?

Spam is so annoying. I spend lots of time to delete it on my wordpress based blog. When you have enabled comments, have a forum ... it's always a question, what...

100 images online, what a journey :)

Today I signed in to my profile and here it was looking at me ... "magical 100" in the uploads. That has made my day to finally cross to three digit number. Also image which pushed me over the top has symbolic 2013 (New Year illustration), so I take it as a good sign for me to carry on in the stock photography.

What a journey, since becoming member last year. I know, still a newbie, a bit slow .... hey but learning :)

I've heard about stock a few years ago, since then I've been sometimes remembering about it, but never got myself to check it out. Then finally I read good article on stock photography in one photo magazine I borrowed from friend of mine. And I thought to myself.... how long are you going to put it away? Give it a try!

Thanks guys! This month is going well with uploads and acceptance :) It must have been my "Dorian King Crown" that brought me all the "fools" good luck ;0 ... pity it's gone today :( But perhaps buyers will be image hungry after the Easter break :)
