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: Double post, also (likely?) not even Gentoo, unsupported.

He must be desperate; he made the same post on four other sites apart from this one:

Wow, you're just plain stupid, reporting someone because the suggestion he gave you is not working... seriously!
First not all suggestion are working because many times the user himself cannot properly apply it.
Second, many times "I" (and some others) help by suggesting something to a problem, sometimes many solves exist to a problem, and the proper one cannot be guess because of lack of infos from user, and instead of asking user this or that, you put the one you think will work and keep going if it didn't, that's a shortcut i'm sure all users love, so their problem is solve faster than waiting days until you come back for suggestion #2...
Third, i just sometimes guess the solve, if user cannot get solve, it might just because nobody have it, it doesn't mean with a bit of logic and patience you cannot get it still ; but if user is asking for it, it's because he cannot get it himself, and a new pair of eyes help a lot to look in new direction instead of turning around trying the same thing again and again ; and failing.
And last, we have nothing in CoC that force us to have 100% result, so you won't get your money back (try to remember how much you pay the service).

While it might be against the CoC itself, we don't really even need to have it in CoC that if someone suggest you something to hurt your system, actions will be taken. But Donahue didn't do that here, his suggestion makes sense, and even another user backup it.

What do you expect, Donahue ban because your poor little boy cannot fix your problem? Is it the way you expect the forum to work: help me or die? Do you think anyone will even try to help you then?
Go use ubuntu and stop bugging us if you cannot manage yourself your distro.

User: [deleted username because it was their website url]
Topic: kernel error on boot
Post: post 7735626
Reason: What i will never get is: doing such spam in order to let you get known, but is it worth been known as a spammer?
I really fail to see the benefits, bugging people is not the best way to promote yourself, but it should works as they keep doing that.

I wonder that myself, too. Especially when posted on a forum such as this one that has nothing to do with what they are pushing, and especially posted as a severely off-topic reply to an already long thread where it's unlikely to get seen by anyone remotely interested in what they have to sell.

Some thoughts on the matter:
  • If they are actually legit, they probably feel think they need to "be seen on the internet" but opted for a cheap ineffective spammer instead of going through more reputable channels. There's lots of "drive traffic" sites out there and it's easy for someone who doesn't know any better to think they'll help, when they usually don't.

  • If they aren't legit, they might be hoping if they spread it around enough they can play the 0.0000001% click-thru odds and perhaps reel in a few suckers before they disappear, nevermind the turds they leave everywhere in the community.

  • Or they are simply trying to get "linkbacks" from as many "reputable" sites as they can, in the belief that the more links to a site the higher search engines would rank it. But I think most search engines are wise to that trick by now.

Regardless, they have been binned & banned. Thanks for reporting it.

User: gawaine
Topic: Failed to emerge sys-fs/udev-219
Post: post 7737736
Reason: Duplicate of Failed to emerge sys-fs/udev-219 by the same user in the same forum. The reported post has a partial build log. The linked post has a link to a pastebin'd build log and a response from a regular user trying to offer help. I suggest combining the threads or deleting the reported post as redundant.

Thank you. Actioned as suggested. NeddySeagoon
