[solved]How can I stop this spam?

Hobbyknipsel says:

I've faved a nice photo.
The owner is neither my contact nor reverse contact.
he didn't fave any of my photos,
he didn't comment on any of my photos.
That's all ok so far.

But:
As a result i get mass re-commented "thanks" spam.
I've no relations with all this listed names.

What a nasty mess is this?
Found such spam listings double, triple the size
(as in the above sample shown)
in my "notifications".
For me an absolutely useless and unwanted information, aka "spam".
How can I stop it?

Thanks for your attention.

Can you not simply mute this notification from the 3 dots menu on the right?

Apart from that, perhaps do no fave stuff from people that effusively thank everyone personally for every fave or comment. (-;

Have you ever [clicked on the three dots to the right of the item or] considered the switches on this page?

I'm not a clairvoyant, I don't know the reaction of Flickr members in advance.

I know this adjustments, I'm not a newbie in Flickr.

There is NO option for my described problem.

Thanks, found it!
The "mentions" switch should be "off".

At least under the bell notifications, depending on the sort of activity that occurred the option to mute is there or not. You never know what pops up until you click it. It looks pretty random to me.
NB For mentions (individual) muting should be available,

Personally I would never mute all mentions, because one misses too many valuable responses by contacts. In this case I would just mute it.
It'll soon sink down the list anyway.

The remark about clairvoyancy is odd IMHO
Whenever I fave and/or comment something I always load the photo page and can easily spot those who reply to every single comment and fave made.

That is not your real concern here (correct me if I'm wrong), more that he thanks you and countless others in the same comment. (-;
