Hi @blakeklein ,

Really not sure re this user.

He/she has been a member for a fair while but all his/her answers always contain a link to the one website.

The web link in the answers is relevant to the question in nearly all the answers given by the user (haven’t checked all as there are 5 pages).

So maybe they just like the one website having the solution, but is it promotion/advertising?

This thread seems to be overcrowded now. It's up to everyone but it may be near the time to make a new one.

Agreed. Time for a new thread.

Do you all think it’s time for a new spam thread or should we wait? It seems like it’s beginning to overcrowd.

I’ve always thought it was time but we’ve stuck to this thread so I didn’t give it too much more thought.

@nick feel free to make another one. I only ask that you indicate in the title that it's the second one of this month :)

If everyone agrees it's time, I'll do it. This one is just about there in terms of being overcrowded.

by

The more separate folders we'll have the worse the confusion is going to get. Leave it alone for as long as @blakeklein and the iFixit team can respond to our reports.

by

That's fair. Post a comment on this when you think it's time or do it if I don't get to it quick enough.

@blakeklein @oldturkey03 Another Android root tool scammer…

https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/5178...

You might want to put the link to the scammers website in a blacklist so that it cannot be posted again. I have seen umpteen amounts of these scammers.

EDIT: @danj got to it first. Thanks Dan!

@oldturkey03 @mayer @blakeklein @evan

Here’s a user who appears to be pushing a high end SMD rework station. He answered a question (https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/4496...) back in May, which while odd considering the product he was suggesting, I left it as-is.

Now suddenly he is no longer an authoritative contributor but a noob who “asks” if there is a solution, such as the product he was hawking the first time around, to solve his “problem” (https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/5179...).

I’ve marked his question as SPAM and suggest he be banned.
