Sometimes it just gets too much, like you open discussion forum and see 7 threads in a row spammed.
I mailed them, and constantly flag such posts, but one thing I wonder is that - Even after getting -83 or -100 karma, they aren’t banned. Admins do take actions, especially against serious things, but I feel that spammers are kind of…being dealt leniently. But again, I agree if you say that suspending their accounts wont help, cause its a new account everytime.
But there are 2 things I want to highlight your attention to-
Some of the spams are like
relevant stuff and spam links at end -
"Yes the problem is quite good… …
/end of post.
spam link1 spam link 2.*
while some are of format with spam links in between relevant stuff.
*The best C++ book I encountered so far [help me write an essay] is Introduction to C++ by ___ "
I kinda feel strange about it, feels as if those accounts are hacked or some tampering has taken place.
Also, the only suggestion I could come up with, against spammers, was a minimum 3 karma to insert links in your answer. If anyone has a better suggestion, do tell so that we all can mail codechef. I think if we all give same suggestion, they will consider it with more weight!
