What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

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
