Alan May reported it to Noel and Noel's already removed the account.

Looks like the spammers used the Facebook tactic of duplicating an existing profile and then posting.

Looks like it's been removed already.  My guess is it's sounding like a spoofed account.  I've reached out to Bob Stewart through his profile page in the past to report accounts.  You can also click the "Report" button on the blog itself, regardless of if it's members only, public or has comments disabled or not.  If someone else has reported it though, it will be unable for additional reporting.

Great question Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents . With out scrolling down to see the other answers I think I'd first check with Sheila to see if she was indeed hacked and if she was let her run with reporting it.
