Thanks for the heads up Niels. :)

Gitorious doesn't seem to have the capability to combat this
properly yet. :/

The user appeared in the general user list, and there was a clickable
"Suspend" link next to their name.  Clicking that gave:

  "Suspended Gitorious account. User will not be able to log back in.
   Ssh keys are revoked. User can no longer push code to the site."

One side effect, the user is no longer in the user list, so it's no
longer possible to view any options for them.  Hmmmm.

There wasn't any option there for "remove all comments by this
user", or similar.  Looking for options on the spam comments
themselves, there's nothing there I can click on.

I'll email the Gitorious people, and see what needs to be done.

Worst case scenario, we can ask them to remove the comments from
the backend database directly or something. :)
