Ban this user as a spammer

https://www.ifixit.com/User/2198046/sdfs...

@sam are you back at work? We need to get the moderator powers that we talked about at the conference implemented.

@evan we are under attack!

I've banned three new users in the last ten minutes, the spammer keeps creating new accounts.

four, 10/12 /17 five , seven, nine, thirteen, 14, 17

I wonder if he's creating a new email account each time.

@mayer I killed off a few answers didn't kill the users as each was only one or two posts. I think it was three users.

by

@danj That's the problem, if we don't kill them today........... @sam

by

@mayer - This is a tough question when to just kill the answer Vs kill the user.

If we could tell it was the same person creating multiple users that I agree killing off the users with just one or two spam questions makes sense (being the same creator).

If its just a single time by the one user (creator) a slap should suffice.

The ones that post a stream thats a no brainer, Kill them!

by

@danj that's why we need the modifications to the ban power so we have options. Right now there's no way to just slap a hand, we have to cut it off and we have to make that decision on the spot.

@mayer everyone of those has been taken care of. TPTB seem to have deserted us (maybe we misbehaved and are no longer liked;-) and we just have to continue to be vigilant and use whatever powers we have.

Was this answer helpful?

Maybe where undergoing some secret test to see how well we fare without any of the TPTB.

Kinda like Minho and the gang in The Maze Runner, it's all just a test! <smile>

You guys need to watch the movie, I'm awesome in it ;>).

We still like you, promise! Evan is back at school and working part-time, so he's not as available as he was this summer. I'll chat with Sam about mod powers. Thanks for being patient with us.

by

@kaykay thanks. Best of luck to Evan. @pccheese you know what, not a bad idea. How about we just try for a while to make it without TPTB ? I am sure we can do it while those guys try to get their heads above water......
