Apologies Sarah, but can this User ID be altered and the user warned or even banned if deemed so etc. Reason is obvious

Hi @jayeff, thank you for finding these. I've taken care of all three. As for the last one, I banned them as well. I think they probably knew it wasn't okay to pick that user ID so I'm not going to bother with a warning. Thanks again! :)

Hi @sarahw ,

There is something amiss here with the Most Helpful Answer to this question

The question was answered by this user and within 3 minutes of the answer being posted it was upvoted by these 3 users

3767568

3745964

3747662

Found some other users who like voting for 3734811 as well on the same day that answers were posted by him/her

3736077

3767574

Is this students practicing or the same user?

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

Not sure if this user is just being helpful or spamming. Always different websites and sometimes not a relevant answer to the question in my opinion

Hi @jayeff! Thank you :) It looks like it was a busy weekend! I took care of all of the users below the possible voting ring. We're still evaluating what to do with those accounts and determining if it is a voting ring or not. I will follow-up as soon as it's taken care of. Thanks again for your help!

Hi @jayeff, I reached out to @kristen and @jogihara and got their opinions and we came to the conclusion like you that it did look like a voting ring and went ahead and banned them! Thanks again! :)

Hi @jayeff, thanks for finding all of these! I took care of them all, including the user who kept posting the same site. They really shouldn't be promoting an outside site.

In case you don't post tomorrow, have a great weekend and happy holidays! I'm taking the 24th-25th off but will be back Monday to take care of spam. Thank you for all of your help, we really appreciate all that you do! :)

Hi @sarahw ,

Thank you and I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas.

There is now a light at the end of the tunnel so take extra care and stay safe.

Hi @sarahw ,

Might be helpful but always points to same website that has the same name as the user 3783750

The iRobot’s catching this user but they’re persistent and may need to be banned

This isn’t in itself spam, but it’s a spam farm. Needs cleanup and to be closed.

Hi @sarahw

Just wondering if these two users are one in the same as they often post the exact same answer (which I usually moderate to a comment as it is not really an answer to the problem) or is the 2nd user just copying the first?? Strange.

3606526

3444240

Here’s an example, note their comments under the question

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

This user needs to go.

I’ve denied the edits to the guide done by them and someone else (or the iRobot) has also deleted an answer by them as being inappropriate

Cheers

Hi @jayeff! I'm not sure that they are the same people but the second one is copying the first and seems to be more of a problem at this point so I'm going to ban the one. I've also taken care of the other user you posted about. Thank you!

Hi @sarahw ,

Last one for the year ;-)

This user just provides links. All different but I feel not very helpful as the OP could for that themselves.

All the best for 2021 and stay safe

Cheers.
