User continually posting links to his website RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a certain user in the Windows 7 networking forum who posts silly replies, just to get his/her banner in, with links to his/her websites.  I think he is doing this to improve his search-engine ratings, but it is bringing down the quality and reputation of Technet.

    Is there anything I can do to report this user?

  • The user name is Vegan Fanatic and s/he keeps posting links to his/her "paid remote assistance" and games etc. When others report his/her posts are abusive (spam), s/he takes revenge by reporting those people's posts (which are genuine answers without any ads or abusive contents) as abusive.

    The most stand-out case can be seen here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itproperf/thread/aa547fbe-9e72-430a-8d5f-75174150e7fd

    Forum moderators please help!

  • True, he still does that. His replies just don't make any sense!

  • Just keep reporting him as a spammer.  Eventually, if enough different people report him, someone has got to take notice!

    BTW, I haven't run into him lately, thank goodness.

  • I´ve seen this dude in the SharePoint forums too.  It´s astounding that he´s an MVP.
