I just stumbled across this answer from this user (which I’ve down voted). The answer is ‘Try this link may be useful to you.’ (and that was after somebody had edited it to improve the spelling). On the face of it, this answer looked a bit like spam, so I did what I usually do and had a look at some of their other answers. Of the answers I’ve looked at, including this one and this one all of them seem to be go and look at this link type answers, mostly with no explanation of what the link leads to. Some of the answers, like this one, have upvotes, others like this have been accepted. What should I do when I come across this situation?
Options would seem to be:
- Post a question here (which is what I’ve done) and hope a moderator picks it up.
- Flag one of the answers for moderator attention, with a brief explanation.
- Go through flagging all of the link answers with no votes/accepts as ‘not an answer’ / or spam.
- As some of the posts seem acceptable to other members of the community, ignore it and move on.
