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.

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.

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

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.

Indeed. But they appear to have posted a helpful reply, but I don't know the details of python well enough to know whether it is a good idea to do that. Still thinking... -- Akkara

I would myself say that the details coming from both python paths shown are good clues the answer is coming from a user that do use gentoo at least.
Just to point out that, as it makes it legitimate for me. (but random binary distro might also use two python interpreter and i'm not aware of that ; but i think that must be somehow gentoo and its derivative specific)

User: leslieranaa
Reason: yasp

[Moderator response: Not banned yet. The profile URL is currently just $user.github.io, which is reasonable for a Github profile site if the user chose the same username on Github as on the forum. If there is specific spam content at that profile URL, please point it out. Otherwise, this one will remain on the watchlist for now. -Hu]

User: marcthe12
Topic: scp is ... outdated?
Post: post 8367810
Reason: suspect spam

[Moderator response: The post could do with better capitalization and grammar, but it is an on-topic criticism of the solution proposed above. An earlier, non-reported, post advocated sftp. The reported post notes that Dropbear, an alternate sshd implementation, does not support sftp. This is a good reason not to use Dropbear on systems that can afford the full sshd, so the post seems on-topic to me. It could still become spam, so it bears watching, but if it is a spam precursor, it's at least a better one than most. -Hu]

One could be using Gentoo Linux, and be affected, but yeah, probably not the best place for the topic, and considering the user's other posts... we will be watching...Chiitoo

This sounds like windows advice.

User: clarc21
Topic: Civilization VI running a blank screen
Post: post 8413074
Reason: New user posting Windows-specific advice ("set it to start as admin in the compatibility settings of game.exe"). There is no sign of profile spam or in-post spam yet. The user might merely be lost, but should be watched.

Usually I like to wait for them to add them URLs, but this time I went ahead and binned them posts already. However, I kept the hammer sheathed(!?) for now. Let's see what it will do next, if anything!Chiitoo
Agreed. -Hu

User: Rutcha
Reason: 1 message, url in profile, archeologist poster, i didn't click the bait, spam for me

The url is github.io. I believe others consider that an acceptable url. My .02. Thanks for reporting. --pjp
[According to https://help.github.com/en/github/working-with-github-pages/about-github-pages, $STRING.github.io is the usual location for a Github Pages site owned by the Github account $STRING. This site can be anything Github will allow the accountholder to post. It's not necessarily legitimate nor necessarily spam, but must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. -Hu]

I clicked it. I can't read Portuguese, but it looks okay to me. Necropost was bad, but sometimes people don't notice the date.
Maybe watch, but don't ban.

edit -- I can, and it is not harmful nor dangerous. Let it be for now. pilla
