Kenky Dude, is it usual?

    Question

  • I got 3 alerts instantly saying Amal Hashim's answer were proposed and when I check those thread it was Kenky Dude who was doing so. Out of curiosity I checked Amal Hashim's thread's page

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/threads/?user=Amal Hashim

    Not only some, All of his answers were proposed by same guy and marked helpful too, so just bringing to your attention and wanted to know is this usual. He proposes so many answers in one go in which time I dont think it is even possible to read the responses.

    Do we have anything in place to discourage such activity? I am sorry if all of Amal's answer were helpful and answered Kenky Dude's Problem but it looks very unusual to me that one user marking all response of another single user and marking them helpful.

  • The solution, as I have suggested many times in this forum, is to get rid of the Propose as Answer feature altogether.

    There is really something wrong if nearly all the uses of the feature are self-propose or buddy-propose. Apart from anything else, there is no way for the forum software to know whether "self" and "buddy" are the same person.
