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.

Topic: Howto install Gentoo on Eee PC 1015PED ?
Reason: I'm not sure but I think this is just about generating links to the linked site. The (new) poster seems to prime their own reply (the link), and then another new user reposts the link having created an account to simply say thanks. Given the nature of the linked site (which seems to exist for the purpose of self-promotion, the selling of certifications, advertising, and ebooks), and the language of the posters (and the lack of acknowledgement of replies), I'm inclined to think this is designed to pass bellow the radar.

Will be watched, though at least half of them currently seem more like a legit user than the other kind (as you have come to see already as well). Thanks for the report!Chiitoo

Well, I'am sorry if have done something wrong, but I am only a private person in Sweden, that found the link for installing Gentoo and the guide is easier to follow as a Gentoonoob like my self.

And my native language is Swedish, so my English is not perfect because of that.

I have no interest what so ever to do advertisment for that site or anything around it.

So khayyam, you are badly mistaking my motives in this matter.

Again, I am so sorry. :cry:

I will go over to the Scandinavian Gentoo forum instead, now that I know there is one. :)

As the other users have already pointed out elsewhere, them spammers try quite hard to fit in (sometimes), so it's not too rare to mistake legit users for being that sort (or for other users to test them out).

So, welcome to the forums! Also, don't worry about using the English sections. I've seen even less English English than your English manage here just fine, or at least OK, so I would not suggest you to limit yourself to the non-English sections as long as you can understand the other users and the other users can understand you (at least most of the time). :]

pilla, jaglover ... the OP is attemping to boot templeOS via qemu, and the user TempleOS seems to be the author/developer. So, I don't think there is anything spamish going on, or anything to watch.
