Albert Reynolds is a spam account:

https://www.ifixit.com/User/2957736/Albe...

Look through his post history and his only post (an answer to a question) is pretty bad spam advertising some sketchy websites

This first one https://www.ifixit.com/User/3104054/Newi... is just promoting his software while this other one seems to have subscribed just to upvote his friend (his own) answers. How smart..

Newiqev can go take their software and promote it elsewhere. We went ahead and took care of that user, but we can't seem to find the other user you're referring to. Please go ahead and provide the links to their spam and profile. Thanks @arbaman !

@jogihara I apologize, it seems I forgot to add the other account I referred to, here it is: https://www.ifixit.com/User/3106251/hfzh...

Yup this definitely looks like they're upvoting their own answers. Went ahead and ban-hammered that user. Thanks again @arbaman !

During the mating season, adult salmon will swim upstream to find their original nesting grounds. Unlike salmon, all Roku spam lines are flushed downstream never to be heard from again (or at least we hope). Thanks for catching this one @oldturkey03 !

@jogihara Mjölnir did not do a lot this month. Wer rastet, der rostet. Maybe these leftover Hulu experts etc., would offer an opportunity to prevent this:

The price wasn't right for the user David Miller, but the user Sofia James was close enough so they get a pass.

On the real note, I didn't ban Sofia James since they were posting helpful links. However, David Miller was disguising links to spam/malicious content in the anchor text, so I banned him. Thanks for looking out @nick !

by

Sofia rubbed off as if she was as bad as David when I seen it. Didn't expect anything useful, so it went here.

by

@nick No worries! A couple of Sofia's posts do seem suspicious, but after further investigation it doesn't appear that she's spamming/providing useless content.

I'm honestly very close to just retiring it since I'm tired of the spam attacks. This is the 4th time it's happened.
