The is not a defect in Launchpad code.

amhnews did cause problems in November of 2011. He his account reactivated on 2011-11-17 after he apologised.

I do not see any current merge proposals, did he propose to merge that branch to merge? I see he imported the branch on 2012-01-06, but the problem revision is from the period that he was suspended. I think he needs to be reminded that the branch was among the ones that we considered inappropriate. He can fix the git branch, or remove the delete the import.

ok.
I canceled his merge proposal last year, but still this spam appears in the following page of my project: https://code.launchpad.net/boot-repair

I have suspended the user, but cannot delete the branch myself. I have asked an admin to do so.

Can you help with this problem?
