Major spamming going on

Is any moderator available at the moment? There is major spamming going on for over an hour now - level 1 profiles posting links for PDF downloads. @GeorgesHR @FelipePK @MarinSt

New profiles are getting created all the time, every 30 minutes or so. Just go through the list of recent posts and you will see loads of the beginning with 'PDF'

Re: Major spamming going on

Bonus question @GeorgesHR @ermest: I started out this morning by using the 'report inappropriate content' feature on quite a few of these posts. Is doing this on multiple, similar posts helpful to the moderators or in fact causing more work to process all of those notifications?

Hey @JanVanHaver,

 

Generally is helpful yes. We sometimes happen to miss some of the spam that comes in, but in this case the team saw the whole spam activity and managed to deal with it on time.
