I suggest that...

A 'report this' button is implemented to prevent spamming the registry

I searched the ORCID registry for "school" and lots of spam 'profiles' for driving schools, yoga schools, etc came up in the search results. For example:

http://orcid.org/0000-0001-7582-2402
http://orcid.org/0000-0001-9587-8075
http://orcid.org/0000-0001-6240-8560

ORCID has a process that runs each week aiming to identify potential suspect records, but it is dependent on keywords. I propose that ORCID implement a 'report this' button and we can crowdsource getting rid of these spam profiles?

    Thank you for your suggestion to improve the ORCID Registry.

    We shall put this as a feature under review. Let us know if you have any suggestions for how this may appear on the ORCID record.

    For now, please continue to report any suspect records to support@orcid.org, as well as any suggested keywords to add to our regular spam search.

    Warm regards,
    ORCID Community Engagement and Support
