As for my personal (+/- 3-5 years) experience/observations, concerning spam/scam/abuse protection, on different international social networking sites and community portals, I could recommend for the Bonfire web developers team the "Tagged/hi5" features for neutralize (report/block/delete) such kind of unwanted contacts. (Pls, fellows, excuse my "self-made English", if any)
