Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 was following the [java] tag and noticed this user.

He asked these questions within a few minutes:

All of them are very similar, and the user has not voted, commented or accepted any of the answers he got.

Could this behavior be considered malicious? Should I flag for moderator attention?

I don't see anything malicious - aside from being just another help vampire. – Mysticial Feb 10 '13 at 23:20
@Mystical That could be seen as either malicious or just annoying. Some people tend to view help vampires as malicious, though. – APerson Feb 10 '13 at 23:20
It looks as if they are posting an absracted version of homework questions or something. – Alex Hope O'Connor Feb 10 '13 at 23:21
@AlexHopeO'Connor but it is all from the same user. – user000001 Feb 10 '13 at 23:22
@user000001, yeah that was my point, the questions are similar but different like you would find in a homework excersise with the purpose of teaching Java string manipulation etc – Alex Hope O'Connor Feb 10 '13 at 23:24
IMHO this behavior should be bannable. – user000001 Feb 10 '13 at 23:31
@user000001 It is. It's called the "Question Ban". – Mysticial Feb 10 '13 at 23:33
