Ok, I have noticed a thread with many replies; that really had no place being there, and these veil advertisers seem to be circle-jerking each other.... that's how it seems....


I checked the most recent poster's created thread history;   before mid last year he literally copy/pasted text (sometimes the entire text) from the page/article in his link and links it as well... This goes for all of his created posts.  He has not created a post since;  only short responses of general 'a or b' opinions/statements, not really discussion that I can see.


For his recent post history;  most of the replies are just a random comment similarly in-line with the subject of the thread;  nothing really to bringing anything of substance to the conversations.


looks like a mostly copy/paste turned to spam user when the merit system and stronger crackdown on copy/paste was enacted.

Check this:  
His created topics:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;threads;u=36229;sa=showPosts

His recent posts:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=36229;sa=showPosts

His most recent merit was from a deleted thread; but NotFuzzyWarm gave it to him... so i don't think much of that.  no worries.

The thread which inspired me to make this post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2771677.40

the real question is why did he reply... he didn't add anything new.... No less its a topic from a year ago, that I and others had already covered/answered, and I was even not compensated for my work as was promised by the OP....

Im looking for opinions;  im not looking to torch someone;  but curious as to what moderators think.  His created threads history is the main reason I am posting here.   100% of the reason actually.

Ive seen people banned recently for less; so another reason why I bring it up.

If any bigger trusted members here can throw a vouch or some thoughts, would be appreciated and put my mind a little at ease.

I don't like pointing a gun at someone if I don't have to; but the post history necessitated it.

Whatever you think off topic and low quality in the post history, report it to Moderator with your justification.

Post copying outside text with source link and nothing added by OP is considered as low value post, when reported these threads are trashed.

If we were to start a whole topic about every similar account then Meta is going to be a disaster, whatever you think that member does, is done by the majority of members here, so if it's copy-paste / off-topic simply report it , don't start a topic about it , it does not really help the forum by any means IMO.

if you really need that, then something is wrong with you , not trying to be mean , i just think it's "TOO MUCH" to be needing an opinion from a random person on the internet about another random person just to ease your mind.

Good luck.

100% accurate report history here... and there's a reason for it that you choose to ignore.


I am looking for outside opinions on the subject;  not idiotic rants that don't help the topic at hand.  Its comments like yours that make this board the shithole its been becoming.

Apparently this is why you are spending your time and efforts in the meta section...

If we were to start a whole topic about every similar account then Meta is going to be a disaster,
count the amounts of these types of posters, and count how many i have asked about.   Your statements are very ignorant of what actually is.


The reasoning for this post was made very clear;  because its not a clean-cut definitive answer, and requires outside analysis.    Leave the attitude at your door dude;  it is 100% unnecessary. Did I ever ask for advice on what I should be doing?  no.  I asked about the quality of his posts and if others merited him being thrown under the knife.

understood;  but since his copy/paste are from a few years back; and the confusing translations of his and others' posts together, it is hard for me to make a singular judgement.
No sense at pushing people in front of a bus unless its clear they deserve it.


Unlike many;  I still believe you should have ample and clear evidence before accusing someone of a crime.
I dont behave like a 2016 Democrat;  sorry.

I looked at a few and that account seems like someone who at one point or another was banned for copy/paste, or had an alt banned for that. Most of what I saw was straight copies with a link at the base, which screams lesson learned... the wrong lesson. I hate those threads and have reported a few before, not many though.

It's hard to say why they picked up the merit, or any could have been a one-off where someone liked the content. If they don't look closer which is expected when meriting they may not notice the pattern of using other peoples work to feign contributions.

I would just go through and report away. If enough of their topics/posts get reported and marked good they may receive a temp ban. I believe there have been a few of those happening more as well. There is nothing wrong with reviewing someones post history and reporting anything you deem low quality - especially if they do it enough that they put themselves on your radar. Hope that helps.

There is no reason for you to be mad  Grin ,i simply said this topic is useless and that is what it is to be honest, ok your intelligence and skills helped you spot a spammer , you had to start a whole topic about it thinking it will get all the attention as if you found a unicorn, i know you are excited and all but what you found is nothing out of the ordinary that requires a whole topic dedicated to it, my grama can find 10 shit posters/spammers in 10 mins without having to understand English.

But by all means, go ahead and waste your time  Roll Eyes
