It's necessary as a deterrent or example for future spammers. If we do nothing, they all dogpile on. As it is, only a few dogpile on. Vigilance is necessary in an unmoderated group.

Drive around in a city with no traffic enforcement, and afterward you appreciate policemen even when they give you a ticket.


-- is bogus.

Actionable... cracks me up every time.  Look it up.

Unforunately, there are only policemen over here (i.e. in this group) shouting 
at the drivers: "Don't do that!"
No tickets, no guns......

And I wonder whether many of those  "future spammers" will read this 
group/thread before they start spamming, nor read the replies they get.
And even IF they apologize, they will be back next time.
