Speaking of which, what is the procedure to delete a spam message and remove a spamming user?
Well, for some reason I hadn't seen the "remove button" message... As for deleting the user, I suppose an admin can do it.
For true spam (off-topic links, porn, advertisements, etc), please don't "remove". Instead, people in the "Coordinator" role also have a "mark as spam" button, which causes SpamBayes training of the message, and also makes the message unreadable for anonymous users (including search engines). People posting spam for SEO thus get truly blocked.
A mere remove will just detach the message - the message URL in itself remains accessible.
In the specific case (msg104314), "remove" was probably the right thing, since it isn't real spam, but just non-sensical. I don't think the user needs to be banned from the tracker.
