This will allow an easy method of contacting all moderators at one time.
  • Users:
    • If you spot what you believe to be a duplicate post, please post a link to it here. In addition, include a link to what is being duplicated.
    • If you find a post you think belongs in a different forum, let us know.
    • Avoid multiple reports of spam:
      • If a user's posts are all spam, report the user, not the posts.
      • Review this thread after submitting a report. Please delete your report if someone beat you to the punch.
    • Any other post that you think requires moderation (violations of Guidelines, broken BBcode, etc.).

  • Moderators:
    • Please delete posts after you've addressed them.
Thanks in advance.

Reason: This member is giving erroneous advice and only adding to confusion. We all make mistakes, it is human, but talking nonsense repeatedly should not be allowed.

User: tom_brown
Reason: Nothing offensive _yet_ but for some reasons I'm highly suspicious. Watch him.

[Moderator response: He has some other posts that look a bit less suspicious, and appears to be just a new user who could use a bit more practice with forum etiquette. Even so, he will be watched. -Hu]

User: zux0x3a
Topic: Gentoo Install Script
Post: post 8264232
Reason: I thought that was a genuine user, but now I think we have a really well disguised advertising profile here.
Also, the skill level presented on the forums seems to be kinda low compared to the one required for the linked website.

User: hismaimai
Topic: What is the best way to find a prime number?
Post: post 8265172
Reason: post count #1, sig holding some welcome message waiting to be change with spam.

Thanks for the heads up, with posts like this one we will often wait for a while to get spam as such so that we can file a report with Stop Forum Spam, which can help keep them out of other sites in addition.

did you notice his sig has vanish now? Still no spam, maybe seen he has been report?

Vanished, and returned, either they were oblivious to the report or they just wanted to use the window they had to spam, either way, they are banned now. Thanks for helping keep watch on things.

User: notageek
Topic: Land Rover's new owners ruining the brand
Post: post 7953250
Reason: Two years ago, notageek offended me. He said, to wit, "Stop talking out your ass, you're stinking up the place." You can see that I intended to report it at the time (I said "Reported", but apparently did not do so. I'm reporting it now, so that justice may be done, and in case he someday gets nominated to be a Supreme Court Justice or something.

Given that he would be an immigrant, his past offenses would likely be ignored; even his vehicular assault on that poor cow. -- desultory
[Regarding "Reported": when the report post is deleted, the report marker resets. So you may have reported it then, but if your report was expired in due course, then the post would again be marked as unreported. Regardless, if your goal is to use it against him in the future, you need to sit quietly on it now and tell no one, so that everyone is caught by surprise when you spring it on him at a key moment. -Hu]

Bones McCracker ... no need to take offence, that "talking out your ass" is clearly early 80's collage patois for "praying to Jesus for good test scores", and anyone having talked out their ass can smell that a mile off. Besides, notageek is too over-qualified for supreme court justice, for instance, I'm almost certain he'd know that when a witness says "they have no recollection of said place, event, or having been present" this does not substantiate another's testimony, you know, basic legal shit judges would do well to know. The same can't be said for supreme court justice nominee Chuck Norris ... and so the bar is set so low I doubt even some skinny turd-worlder would be able to squeeze under.

best ... khay

User: Tonny91
Topic: Query Method Recovery Linux from error 'fix the system files
Post: post 8269926
Reason: given openSUSE is not gentoo, and openSUSE 11.1 is from 2008, I suspect his is another cut&paste from some other support forum masking a spammers first post.

[Moderator response: Probably so. This appears to be a copy of https://superuser.com/questions/397927/how-to-recover-linux-from-repair-file-system-error. As such, binned and PM sent. -Hu
2018-10-15: Received a response asserting it is not spam. However, considering the finding documented here, I requested further clarification before restoring it. -Hu]

User: dminca
Topic: [SOLVED] Intel HD Audio in Kernel?
Post: post 8270634
Reason: if i was myself having issue with sound, i would make a post asking to get a solve rather than querying someone else if he manage to have his sound working (as my sound issue won't get fix by his answer)
and with zillions threads about sound issues we have, i would had choose an active one rather than a 2016 post
number of post #1

Mods ... their "website", and domain, is also ficticious.

Might I be so bold as to suggest running dig against a domain name before describing a site as fictitious? Specifically dig any $domain.
I attempted to connect to the 'website', and did an 'nslookup -sil $domain', both returned negatives.

User: KWCZE
Reason: Recommend keeping a close eye on this user, as they've been perpetrating a vandalism spree on the wiki over the last 2 months and are becoming extremely abusive toward everyone there (and on off-gentoo sites). If previous users with similar attitude are any indication, it's probably going to escalate and spill over to here before the damage is brought under control.

Is it the 'Kreyren' person that is all over the wiki?
