Advertising on the forum

Postby Neill on Sun Mar 27, 2011 11:39 am

A user just joined the forum and posted three times.
Two of the posts appeared to make sense but the third was a direct copy of a post made by Teiana in 2009.
Based on this, and that the signature line was all advertising, I have deleted all three posts.

I assume from the posts that the user is a human rather than a robot
I have not deleted the user. He/she can repost but I don't see any advantage in copying existing content and don't think we want signatures filled with advertising.

I wondered about that. The posts sort of made sense, although were at a very superficial level. The advertising is for Pokemon type stuff. Presumably this is a kid probably making money on click-throughs.

Anyway, I think you did the right thing, although Teiana's reposnses are now orphaned!
