someone did it for all, thank you.

I guess the prob is that the admins don't respond to offensiv flags at the weekend and askbot(TJC) doesn't contain automatic antispam strategies :-/

taged all as spam, so set the filter accordingly

I've blocked the user, cleanup is left to Jolla, as they have better tools for that.

Must be a Sailfish hater just here to tarnish our beloved TJC, thanks for blocking the individual, the username alone smells scam

I think moderation roles should also include rights for deletion of spam. Would that be possible? cc @eric

I am able to delete posts, but it's a rather tedious affair, where I have to go through every one of them one by one, while AFAIU the Jolla admins have better tools. So I'm happy to stop the influx, but will defer the cleanup. Notice how I also wrote better tools in my answer above.

Thanks for clarifying. Did not want to interfere.

Regarding better tools, my suggestion would be to increase the number of "killer cells" within TJC's immune system, as posted here:

@lakutalo we will have post rate limiting soon. For the moderation, everyone with karma over 5 can already flag posts and they get automatically deleted with enough flags. We can also consider increasing the amount of users with moderator rights, who can then block users etc., But lets first see how the rate limiting works.

Thx @Keto, if tagging already helps triggering automatic spam deletion then half the problem's already solved.
