There is a thread about a new shitcoin named egretia, most of the posts end with #egretia-ANN. I think they have asked people to post there to increase the mention count.
Here is their ANN link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3317184.0 you'll need to read the first 5 pages to see what I'm talking about.
Hey I'm joining the party, I'm on to you spammers and paid shills, I'm going to get a lot of people banned in the next few days, just wait.
More workload coming your way mprep.

3. We expect you to post 10 constructive posts per week. If you have Egretia signature, only 3 posts can be in local board and at least 1 of these posts must include the key word of Egretia and related to Egretia.

Even though, they don't specifically say the post in the thread they do specify that at least one post needs to be about Egretia or mentioned. It's only natural that users would flog to their ANN thread, and then include a hashtag to fill both the criteria.

In another words they are blatantly giving an incentive to people asking them to post on the forum, many of the members also have no signatures of egretia but are doing the hashtag thingy. this is just bending the rules whether they ask you directly to post on their ANN thread or just ask you to post somewhere else on behalf of their ICO. note that they are adding *-ANN* so that means they were required to post on their ANN thread. this IMO is another form of paid shilling trying to bump their thread to ultimately collect more money. I'd let mods to decide if this is actually against the rules or not.

Yeah, threads in the past have been removed for similar requirements. Just report the thread, and include the quote, and your explanation if you think it justifies removing it. The moderator will then decide based on the evidence provided. Some of these projects seem to list vague requirements on their bounties, and then actively encourage it behind closed doors in their Discord, and Telegrams. If you are going to be tackling these sort of problems then looking into depth via their website, social medias, Discord, and Telegram would be beneficial to your reports.
