Ugh, @danj, thanks for the post! We're going too far with the pumpkin spice—I'm banning that too :)

by

@sarahw - My friends wife is addicted to it! I can't visit him without getting nauseous from the smell of the candles she has burning ;-}

by

@danj This one was just introduced by me by someone who buys this stuff during pumpkin spice season: https://www.amazon.com/Original-Cakebite...

Why can't pumpkin spice stop with Starbucks? At least you can control exposure in a latte.

by

@nick - Its all marketing! 'Me Too'

@danj Just because you can make pumpkin spice food doesn't mean you should.

Hello @oldturkey03! Technically, they're not supposed to promote their business in a guide so I believe this is grounds for a ban. I'm going to consult with @jogihara to make sure though. Thank you!

Hi @nick, thank you for bringing it to our attention. We deleted some of the non-answers and edited the main one. We don't think the question is worthy of a ban however. Thank you as always for your vigilance!

@sarahw It just seems like those questions are spam traps nearly 100% of the time.

When I mentioned ban, I didn't mean the author should go - I meant that question is a spam trap.

Hi @nick I understand what you are saying now, and I've archived the post so no one is able to post anymore. Thank you for letting us know!

Hey @sarahw , this one isn’t the classical aggressive spammer, but every single answer points or links either to Minitool or Partitionwizard. Not sure this qualifies for a ban, but I believe is worth a look:
