How can I report a promotional blog entry like this one?

I encounter these kind of blogs more and more...

There should be a "report" link in the upper right corner of each blog, which you can use to report them. All the ones you linked to are gone already though: I know the admins do a (semi-) daily walk through all new blogs to pick up on such spam blogs and delete them, so most of the time when the blog is really blatant, it's not really necessary to report it.

For some reason all the links above redirect to the main page of TP?

Yes, because the spam blogs no longer exist. (Try going to http://zxvbxcvcxvxvxcvjfgh.travellerspoint.com/ - it does the same.)

Ok, when I want to see a photo that doesn't exist (what a strange sentence lol), it says: Oops, this photo/page doesn't exist anymore. That is better in my opinion.

If there are any links pointing into those blogs, we prefer to have those go to our front page, not a non-existent page. Helps with search engines ;) Might as well get some benefit out of these spammers (sometimes they do link in to the blogs from other places)
