Spam Folder April 2019

Happy April everyone! I’ve been MIA for the past week as I was out vacationing in Cabo San Lucas. I hope everyone else’s spring season is off to a great start. Anyways, please post any spammy content you find here so @kristen and I can take care of it. Thanks!

Here’s a fishy one!

Brendon Smith posts a question How to recover deleted mailboxes from Exchange Server? @ 05:43:31 AM and clara answers 05:50:33 AM and the answer is accepted @ 05:55:27 AM

In this question Why Access denied repairing EDB with ESEUTIL? her answers where deleted for spamming.

I think both users need the hammer and the question purged. Do the others agree?

Hi @jogihara ,

I banned this user as the user name and avatar was too offensive to stay on over the holiday period until you got back

https://www.ifixit.com/User/3057714/I+Su...

I also edited the question where is was posted just to remove the banned user name from being visible on the Answers page.

https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/3957...

Hopefully you’re OK with this? ;-)

I've banned many users. I don't know if these bans are ever reviewed but I've never had one overturned. Explanations for bans like this, I don't feel are really needed as they are so obvious.

Yup thanks for doing that @jayeff !

Thanks for posting those. We read through the post and although it does seem like a spammy message, the user doesn't make the effort to post the same message across different questions and answers, so we're going to leave the comment up.
