The process is: 

- File a ticket with fedora infrastructure:

- Include in the ticket link to this users contributions that you think
  are spam. Also, CC the user on the ticket so they can comment if they
  would like to. 

- Someone in the sysadmin accounts group will look at this info, then
  check fas logs and groups they are in and other contributions. 

- If the user has only ever contributed by adding spam and is in no
  other groups, they will be placed in 'admin_disabled' which means
  that they cannot reactivate their account until they explain their

- If they have contributed other ways, we may make more effort to reach
  out to them and see if they had a recent account compromise, etc. 

Note that this user you are talking about already has such a ticket
filed for them and will probibly be looked at today.
