I have contacted the user, and suspended the account. I will assign this question to the admins to the spam dealt with.

Thanks for reporting this.

We are currently unable to remove spam from answers.
Have linked the relevant bug.

Well linking this to a five year old but that has done absolutely nothing I think is rather mute.

Perhaps it's time to start creating new bugs with every spam? After reviewing this bug that seems to be the choice of many.

I have sought to find the appropriate avenue for dealing with spam, yet as busy as launchpad is, it simply doesn't have any decent features.

Reporting this way is tedious, but I'm happy to do it. Why there couldn't be a 'Report this' link beside every post is beyond my comprehension.
