We could make a rule that

"v/protectvoat concerns itself with matters that are primarily discussion related. Aside from screen captures to document things, image posts serve no purpose on this sub and will be treated as spam."

Thoughts?

edit: I should have clarified that I was posting this as a possible answer to "What can be done...?" I still firmly believe in user moderation.

Just to play devil's advocate here, what if I make 21 posts using various alts calling you names (i.e. all text based)? I think that this is also spam by virtue of sheer repetition; what say you?

Edited to clarify text based

God I fucking hate slippery slopes. I don't trust anyone, even myself, to enforce rules that call for subjectivity. I will be the first to admit that there is a ton of subjectivity in the flairing of posts, but since a flair doesn't delete I would say subjectivity is not as dangerous. It can be reversed and it doesn't stop discussion.

I think for the most part that would be a great rule to add. It would help get rid of the people who only come here to post pictures of vegetables and things because they would actually be breaking a rule of the sub and not just being annoying.
