This guy is like the bad guy in a film that just doesn't die! This time he has registered for a Pro account, and has made all his commercial videos visible in normal Vimeo searches.

There's more. There are too many videos to link to. If you do a search for "kayaking" a whole load from different accounts show up.

Surely there's a way to modify Vimeo to recognise Amazon affiliate links etc in descriptions? If this guy's videos keep getting shut down automatically due to the Amazon and other affiliate links being recognised he'd soon give up.

Hi there, We do automatically flag some affiliate accounts, and we're always adding to that system.

Can you link us to some of the spam account you're still seeing? I checked out the first two pages for kayaking and didn't see any obvious spam.

Thank you!

Looks like he may have taken them off the public listings. However I did find some results from this guy, which while they don't link to Amazon are still borderline as they are coming up in public Vimeo search results.

Okay, we'll look into this - thanks.
