Forum Spam

Posted by Harry Rowe on Jan 9, 2019 7:16 am

We have begun to see myASQ abused by fake accounts being used to post forum spam advertising such things as horse bedding and a "larceny lawyer". Given that ASQ members information can be easily verified, it could seemingly be made difficult to create such phony accounts.

I was wondering the same thing. It should be much more difficult to create phony profiles on myASQ, shouldn't it?

Harry Rowe‍ the account creation system is being reviewed. In the meantime, we are actively removing such users and content from myASQ.

Any inappropriate or questionable items can be marked objectionable or report the user from their profile page to ensure it's reviewed.
