I think this is a spammer, but I'm not quite sure, since they just tried to post a link to google. neutral

Whoever deleted paysoon, you need to block the account first and delete all the posts before deleting it.

I'm not sure that this user is actually a communist. Although I am impressed by their egoism in creating a "me" tag.

EDIT: Fuck, AGAIN: http://libcom.org/user/gabrielmelvoin It's got to the point where I'm automatically suspicious of anyone making a slightly bland first post.

Since he'll get deleted, I feel I should record for posterity that his profile was trying to sell vasectomies. You have to be pretty brave and/or foolhardy to buy them off strangers on the internet. eek

Just opened up 20 of the last registered posters and deleted 15 as spammers, the others had no posts or profile info to check.
How much do we care about this issue and is there a quicker way of dealing with it if we do? Obviously it doesn't affect libcom too much if loads of profiles on here are full of spam links as long as they're not posting.

There was an interesting variety of spam, levelling up in wow, wow gold, aspen ski homes, SEO experts, acupressure, a blog for Moms and so much more smile

I don't know, I get logged in automatically. I think you're right.
