@avanteguarde - Please post this types of issues here. Where it will get better attention.

I live in the East coast so I see these in the morning. Whereas @mayer & @oldturkey03 can catch them after I've gone to bed as they live in Texas and the IFIXIT team often catches these even later in the day as they are on the West coast.

I've killed off all his negative junk (which you can too!) and banned him.

@danj This guy could use a bit of name change: https://www.ifixit.com/User/2392186/Bobo...

@pccheese - That one is beyond my powers ;-{

Hopefully @evan or @kyle or other IFIXIT person can address that one.

Hey guys, feel free to ask users to change or remove any vulgar content on their own first. Just remember to be polite and not get in fights. If I need to step in just @ me or any other employee and we'll take care of it.

by

@evan my concern is that when someone has a name like that, they may not be here to make friends. I'd personally rather not engage in a name conversation with them. I just stumbled upon him in the recent activity, and linked him here.

@pccheese what’s wrong with the name Dyfan Jones or BoBo? (If that is inappropriate, no malice intended)

Oh well. at the bottom of this post someone keeps mass spamming with multiple accounts multiple comments and multiple answers. https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/6563....

Update (02/24/2018)

Got another one. this Mary, https://www.ifixit.com/User/1612078/Mary always makes a long post in comments of issues that a lot of people have, about starting a class action lawsuit.

"I have Samsung edge and I forgot my password and had to send it to Samsung and it took 33 days to get my new phone what a disgrace my phone was only 9 days old and when I shut my phone down it wouldn't accept my fingerprint it wanted the original passcode which I had forgotten a nightmare that I dont even want to begin to explain ,everyday on the phone with Samsung they send the phone back unfixed and told me it was out of warranty how can a phone be out two months and be out of warranty finally it's resolved no one should have to go through this they put the phone out prematurely until they could figure a way to open it I'd like to start a class action suit against Samsung Google and AT&T"

example from a forgotten password post.

more examples:

"This Has been a Night mare anyone out there that bought a Samsung edge seven or Sam song seven there's no way to unlock the phone unless you mail it back to Sam song I had my phone eight days my phone locked Samsung told me to send it to them it took me 30 days to get my phone back and it's missing a piece and that's going to take 8 to 10 days to get back we need to start a class-action suit anybody interested out there please let me know the more people we have the better it is they should not be allowed to put out a phone with no way of getting into the phone

06/03/2016 by Mary Actions"

"Anyone interested in starting a class-action suit please let me know they have no right to hold someone hostage one to consumers purchasing a brand-new item and they never tell you what your password down because what you forget it the phone locks and there's no way to get into it but mail it back to the company ,I finally received my phone after 30 days yesterday and I still can't use it because it's missing another part now that'll take an 8 to 10 days to get back so that will be almost 40 days they've had my phone there should be laws against this not happening if you're interested in setting up some kind a class-action suit please get back to be"

I've only seen mary do this kind of thing.

Found on this question: https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/4681...

Based on their behavior on other questions, I would just ban them.

@danj you could probably catch him

I told @oldturkey03 about him a while ago.

by

Oh, speaking of @oldturkey03 when will you accept my conversation invite? it should only take a few secs.

by

@captainsnowball - While this person has a negative viewpoint, his comments are not spam.

Correcting his views with facts is the only action you have. Correct his statements the more you do this he'll get the message we what positive comments or real corrections when they are warranted.

by

@danj waiting for him to mess up so he can be banned. he's calling users stupid. i'm watching him.
