Please remove prolific lover spam

Asked by Jeremy Bicha on 2011-08-04

Spam at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntu-docs/+bug/572959/comments/5

I contacted the user via IRC at the time to let him know that he'd apparently gotten a virus but I don't know if he got my message. Thanks!

Unfortunately, it seems that Ayan George's email identity is being forged by spammers in a way that is without his control (i.e., not due to malware on his computer, nor due to his Launchpad or email account being compromised). See https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+question/154642 and https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+question/165020 (cases where this has happened in the past).

However, Launchpad admins can of course remove/hide the spam (so it's good you reported it).

I have found two additional recent spam bug comments posted as Ayan George (ayan), which should also be removed/hidden:
