It looks like we have the first vandalism incident in the live tracker,
see issues #1165, #1166.

How to proceed here?

In #1165, the spammer added a comment and made several changes to metadata.
Marking the offensive message ("Hi guys.") as spam doesn't make sense. I can
delete the message, but it doesn't seem that I can easily delete the metadata
changes made.

#1166 is a newly created nonsense issue. Can it be deleted completely?

Also, since the offending username "esr" was part of the Python SF.net
project, how did the spammer gain access to the account?
