Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I noticed this user ask a really off-topic qustion (actually a question about how to spam) on English.Stackexchange. I then noticed the user's account is active across 20 StackExchange sites with 1 rep each, and has posted the same question on at least one other site.

I voted to close the EL&U question as off-topic, but can't do anything about the webmasters one. This is a minimal amount of activity, but it seems like something we'd want to discourage.

Side note: The only other question asked by the user was closed as off-topic on webmasters and migrated to SuperUser, where it was closed as "not a real question".

I've flagged the Webmasters question. – ChrisF Mar 13 '12 at 16:22
@Bobby: Actually, the question you linked has no relevance to this issue. The user is indiscriminately asking his question about how to spam on several SE sites, probably much in the same way he spams. He figures if he can throw enough spaghetti against the wall, some of it will stick. What a terrible way to run a life. – Robert Harvey Mar 13 '12 at 16:39
"I want to send emails to bulk of emails." — I want you to die in a fire. – jwodder 36 mins ago. Apparently EL&U does not look favorably on spam. – user7116 Mar 13 '12 at 16:44
See here for the (apparently) right way to ask people on SE to help you spam. – Robert Harvey Mar 13 '12 at 16:46

The user's profiles and questions have been destroyed on both sites.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention - this is straight-up abuse.

Waiting to see if he comes back; if necessary, we can suspend all of those profiles en masse. – Shog9 Mar 13 '12 at 17:48
