At least this one isn’t a puppy or has a exposing profile picture?

Hi @nick, thanks for the post, it looks like someone beat me to banning this one! Sorry I didn't take care of it sooner.

Who taught the glue sticks the “art” of spamming? They need to be thrown out before they spread the skill.

Thanks @nick, this one is pretty bad! I've flushed him—nothing artful about it.

Hi @jayeff, I've taken care of the first one. I'm not sure about the other one. We'll keep our eyes on him and see if he continues to promote that site and if so then ban him. Thank you!

Hi @sarahw ,

https://www.ifixit.com/User/Activity/316... always promoting the same website

https://www.ifixit.com/User/3270525/sand... is starting to get active.

I’ve been keeping an eye on ones that answer once with spam (which is handled by iRobot - usually shows as “Answer deleted” with user’s avatar) and if it is done at least once more over the following few days (again handled by iRobot) I pass it on to you.

Are you OK with this or do you want that iRobot just keeps deleting the spam answer rather than the user being banned by you or possibly me if you like, although the >48 hour period would sometimes be a block for me to be able to do it?

Given that a lot of the deleted answers on the forum, going back over a fair amount of time, can still be viewed through the “Show Deleted” option, it must be tying up a lot of storage space keeping deleted spam answers

Hi @jayeff, thank you for keeping an eye on this type of spammer and the way you're handling it is great—we really appreciate it! I'm happy to ban them if you point them out to me. I've taken care of these three. Thanks again!
