PostPosted: Sat Apr 11, 2009 8:40 pm    Post subject: Report violations, duplicates, misplaced posts, etc. Reply with quote

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.

User: axl
Topic: kernel panic - not syncing: vfs: unable to mount root fs
Post: post 8247072
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.

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]

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.

User: Tonny91
Topic: Query Method Recovery Linux from error 'fix the system files
Post: post 8269926
Reason: given openSUSE is not gentoo, and openSUSE 11.1 is from 2008, I suspect his is another cut&paste from some other support forum masking a spammers first post.

[Moderator response: Probably so. This appears to be a copy of https://superuser.com/questions/397927/how-to-recover-linux-from-repair-file-system-error. As such, binned and PM sent. -Hu
2018-10-15: Received a response asserting it is not spam. However, considering the finding documented here, I requested further clarification before restoring it. -Hu
2018-10-31: No further response from the user. This was likely a spammer who was slightly more persistent than most. -Hu]

User: dminca
Topic: [SOLVED] Intel HD Audio in Kernel?
Post: post 8270634
Reason: if i was myself having issue with sound, i would make a post asking to get a solve rather than querying someone else if he manage to have his sound working (as my sound issue won't get fix by his answer)
and with zillions threads about sound issues we have, i would had choose an active one rather than a 2016 post
number of post #1

Mods ... their "website", and domain, is also ficticious.

Might I be so bold as to suggest running dig against a domain name before describing a site as fictitious? Specifically dig any $domain.
I attempted to connect to the 'website', and did an 'nslookup -sil $domain', both returned negatives.

User: coKe
Topic: Random X freezes
Post: post 8271752
Reason: by virtue of the generic nature of the (first) post, and the fact that the user profile provides an AIM address, I suspect this to be cut&pasted from elsewhere in preperation for spam. One to watch.

User: steveL
Topic: [split reports] Topic: SystemD free system/gentoo
Post: post 8281682
Reason: I'd like to raise a formal complaint about steveL's bullyish behaviour. He's just not able to let go. I can live with the moderators' decision to take no action on my original report, but steveL clearly seems to perceive the existence of this thread as a moderative pat on his back.

How he can manage to take "/me bangs heads together. -- NeddySeagoon" as encouragement is beyond me, not to mention pjp's comments, I guess it is my turn at (clue) bat. -- desultory

Topic: Opera packaging
Reason: spam placeholder, copied from this topic

watching it until it will be a real spam

[2019-01-09: Still no demonstrable spam, but someone preemptively binned the topic. User account not yet banned, so not deleting this report yet. -Hu]

User: ISHAIM
Topic: systemd discussion: agree to disagree
Post: post 8299216
Reason: sigspam

EDIT: Oh, realised just now the subscription date of the user. I did not consider that at all because of the total out of context post.
