Hi @sarahw ,

Not sure on this one, user has been around for a while and hasn’t posted much at all, gives answer and self promotes

https://www.ifixit.com/User/1621425/Fix+...

Are the following two working together by any chance?

Hi @jayeff, thank you! I wasn't sure about the first one either so I asked someone to make sure but technically he is breaking the rules so he had to go. As for the other two, I took care of them as well! Thanks again.

0/10 spam attempt - would not give any attempt credit out of principle for failing so badly.

Hi @nick, thanks for the post. This one is tough, although this person is promoting a specific tool, it seems like in their other answers they are trying to offer genuine help. If they continue to post for this company or post a link, we will ban them. We appreciate your vigilance.

by

@sarahw I would blacklist it to be sure then.

Hi @sarahw ,

This user answers but also self promotes, not with a link though

https://www.ifixit.com/User/3314058/repl...

https://www.ifixit.com/User/Activity/331... Just for my info, this user has also posted a comment here , but I have no options to moderate it only to reply. Is it because it is set to “exclusive”?

Thanks @jayeff, I've taken care of these two. I'm not sure why you weren't able to moderate the one, I'm going to have to check with @kristen and get back to you!

Hi @jayeff, thanks for your patience, I conferred with @kristen, and she agrees with your theory, that because it is set to "exclusive" it is limiting moderation ability. Thanks again!

Hi @sarahw ,

Hi @danj, thank you! I've deleted his comments and gave him a temporary ban. Hopefully he'll get the picture. If he comes back after 30 days and starts trolling again we'll have to permanently ban him. Merry Christmas! I'll be back on the 26th for any spam issues.

@sarahw - Thanks!

Merry Christmas! Sarah Don't spike the Egg Nog to much ;-}

https://www.ifixit.com/User/Activity/330... doesn’t provide links but always only recommends the same recovery software

https://www.ifixit.com/User/3099568/kass... as does this user - same software
