Please block some spammers and remove their "questions"

Asked by Manfred Hampl on 2018-03-04

There are some users who post just crap, please block them and remove their question documents:

Just an idea: I do not know how the antispam bot works, but several of those "download or stream video for free" nonsense postings contain just web links and nothing else - quite often to a reddit-address. Could it be a reasonable modification to give question documents a high "probably spam" score if there is nothing but one or more reddit-links in their text (or other links like Mozilla add-ons)?

As usually - thank you in advance.

All done. I have no access to the antispam bot myself, so William will need to look into that bit of it.

Thank you for the work done on the Sisyphus task of cleaning up that spam nonsense.
