Hi @sarahw ,

This user added what I think is spam to their original question that was posted >2 weeks ago. Very strange 3677069

Hi @jayeff, I removed the links but kept the question. I read the comments and it sounds like the links didn't go anywhere but just in case I thought it was best to remove them. Thanks for keeping an eye out for spam!

Hey @jayeff! I'm filling in for Sarah today. I banned the first user. The second one that always uses the same website definitely seems a bit odd, but it doesn't look particularly egregious. I'm going to let that one go for now, but if it gets out of hand, we'll take another look.

Thanks for spotting these!

Hi @sarahw ,

Off topic but can I flick pass this onto you to pass on or to handle yourself please?

The user in the 2nd answer will add the file for the device in question but I’m not familiar with how to get it into the list so that the link can be posted for him to do this, so that the info can be of use to others.

Thanks

Cheers

Hi @sarahw ,

Looks like this guide (see older version Oct. 6 2020 - Introduction), was created by this user just for spam

I deleted the spam but don’t know how to remove the guide and the user is >30 days.

This edit also has to be denied as it makes no sense and I can’t do it ;-)

Cheers.

Hi @sarahw ,

Answers but also links the same website every time 3585254

Answers but always links the same website or mentions them in the answer 3457943

——————————————————————————————————————

Self promoting? 3743386, 2777200

———————————————————————————————————————-

This user 3744645 upvoted the answer to this question, 4 minutes after the answer was posted, by this user 3736139 who answered their own question. Looking at both their profiles they show the same location.

Are these two users one and the same or am I getting too suspicious?

Hope that you ‘adagoodweegend

Hi @jayeff! Thanks for finding all of these :) I took care of all of them however 2777200 is linking in his profile which is allowed so I'm not going to ban him. I can't be positive about user 3744645 so I'm not going to ban him yet but I think it's a pretty good chance that he is the same user as 3736139 who I did ban. I did have a good weekend! I hope you did too!

Hi @jayeff! Thanks for helping with these and posting them! I've taken care of the first three. We should keep an eye on the last user if she keeps on posting a link in her answers, then take action. I've removed the link from her answer. Thanks again!

Not sure with this user but they always add links but never the same 3665765

Hi @jayeff, I looked at this account and it's a little borderline. He seems to try to help with some of his answers but does include links. I think we should just watch and see if he keeps on posting for the same sites. I think for now I'll leave him alone.

I'm going to be out for a couple days for the Thanksgiving holiday so if I don't reply I'm not ignoring you! Someone should check on Spam on Friday. Have a great rest of the week :)

Enjoy!

Take care and stay safe
