Hi @nick, thanks for pointing those out! I've taken care of a couple that only linked to pages. I left one that actually had an answer too. If they continue to post about that page we'll revisit a ban. Thanks again!

Too bad we can't ask Siri about dead bodies anymore otherwise we'd be able to avoid onsite dumping.

Hi Dylan, thank you! I removed all of three spam posts. Let's keep an eye on the accounts to make sure they don't keep on spamming before we take further action. Have a great week!

Hi @sarahw,

3854994 I think that this user has got to go. See their profile on ifixit answers forum. I’ve also voted for their question on Meta to be removed as spam as well.

First official day of winter here tomorrow and it’s getting cold already. For here anyway. Temps down to 8°C at night, and only up to 18°-19°C and cloudy during the day. brr

Cheers
