This girl appears to have set up two accounts and posted the same link for the fix on two questions. She’s to cute for me to ban and the link is valid and is an answer.

@refectio do you mean to imply that your own icon is not actually you? Here I thought you were this famous singer and movie star.

by

Of course that's me ;>)...

The issue with those links is that they appear to be affiliate links so it is really spamming his/her store even if the answer is related. We seem to tolerate this with regular/important contributors from what I see but this "person" is not off to an auspicious start.

Perhaps just changing/removing the links...

by

I would agree with @refectio. The multiple accounts and nearly identical answers look a bit suspicious at first, but they aren't self-promotional links, so I think it's okay.

Hi @kristen ,

They all posted the same answer, nearly within the same timeframe.

I’ve deleted their posts as spam, will leave the rest up to you.

Cheers
