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.

This topic becomes a pain to work with when used for much more than incidental or temporary reports (e.g. spam, "fits better in this forum"). A quick count looks like that had 16 posts. Not sustainable in this topic.

Reason: This member is giving erroneous advice and only adding to confusion. We all make mistakes, it is human, but talking nonsense repeatedly should not be allowed.

There is something wrong: He has included in the title of the thread the name of the software product that he is spamming about. AOMEI Software is a company that sells Windows utility packages.


It could be a legit user that has a problem. He also posted in the company's forum, but he didn't receive a fast answer. He killed his computer with a bad restore and is in panic

User: tom_brown
Reason: Nothing offensive _yet_ but for some reasons I'm highly suspicious. Watch him.

[Moderator response: He has some other posts that look a bit less suspicious, and appears to be just a new user who could use a bit more practice with forum etiquette. Even so, he will be watched. -Hu]

Seems highly probable. Several watches have likely been set a while ago already (see also: post 8260786).Chiitoo

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.

That was caught, and binned, quickly ... but in case no one noticed this was a cut & paste from stackoverflow, and so we should probably expect more of the same, fairly sophisticated, efforts to pass under the radar.
