Reporting vandals doesn't work

In the past months this user has been reported over and over again:

But still this ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ keeps vandalizing translations on a large scale, e.g. adding a dot to every single sentence of an article.

Apparently we are able to 'report' a vandal, but then nobody is doing anything with it. So either the reporting system is broken or it is fake.

I think the administrators aren't very worried about this type of graffiti on Duo, but I think at this point they are keeping there eye on this user. Thanks for this dude. It annoys me all the time. Some people call me very hurtful names like "Charcoal Monkey Boy". But I've learned to ignore it, but at the same time, I'm on your team man.

PS: ( You should probably refrain from using language like "this ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ keeps vandalizing translations." for account protection only reasons thank you.

It is not fake, the reporting system, it is just very much understaffed, from what I understand...and, somehow, Immersion is harder to police than the forums.

It does get discouraging. Right now I'm wondering how someone is even allowed to register with a user name that's a vile word for a private part, let alone post several garbage/spam messages in rapid succession. I continue to downvote but sometimes wonder why I bother. (And yeah, careful about bad words... I did it once, just quoting a garbage post that I was trying to call attention to, and I got a warning.)
