Wait, is this even from Umwelt?

they answered the spam Pham reported with promotional content and uploaded skin care pictures, needs deletion
 
user259867
Um... the posting history is solid. I don't see anything else wrong with it.
 
2.4k then spam... too bad...
 
@AndrewT. should by funny?
 
@AndrewT. exactly why I had to yell...
 
@Behaviour I did see his Harold answer on the spam
ugh, why I wanted to assume good faith that his account was hacked for spam purpose...
 
7:13 AM
spam flag on their answer was marked helpful, but they didn't lose the rep
 
user259867
Maybe it was posted as a joke? Seriously, answering 100+ questions with non-spam to post spam later?
 
@AndrewT. needs moderator investigation
If his account is indeed cracked then you should make the mods poke them and cool down if necessary.

@Unihedro This probably means the answer was deleted because the question was deleted. This marks all spam flags against the answer as helpful. But since it's not a Community-spam deletion, no penalty of -100.

It's just not trained to recognize "Nine holes hands say more what months well okay" as spam. If it said "weight loss" or "skin care"...

Lifehack to save money: Don't use computers. Those things have major part in your electricity bill.
 
@DroidDev Lifehack to save money: By increasing the income you earn, which increases profit, which in comparison makes your costs seem smaller.
 
Lifehack to save money: Plug into neighbour’s electricity wire and Voila!
 
Plot twist: You can't plug into the neighbour's electricity wires because they already plugged in yours, so once you do, there will be no electricity because none of you are connecting to an outlet.

A: How can I quickly cool a water bottle?

OriginGet some dry ice (solid carbon dioxide) or liquid nitrogen if you're cool. Dunk your water bottle into one of those for about 30 seconds for dry ice, 5 for liquid nitrogen. This will cool your bottle super-fast and even turn some of the water into ice.

^ the hacks are more complicated than the conventional solution :D
 
Me in local store: Hey, can you give me 5 cubes of dry ice and some liquid nitrogen?
of-course, it's a life hack
 
@InfiniteRecursion Standby for more awesome life hacks by Lifehacks.SE.

I wonder if the Triage is working as intended. Reviews look borked to me, audits are needed to catch robos who select "should be improved" for all posts.
 
11:01 AM
Triage is in beta basically, give it some time. Manual bans are still being done.
 
Are they? That's great news.

11:31 AM
I left a comment asking him to ping me once he figures out how to post a self-answer @bummi. If we wait for him to post an answer, it might be fatal for his post.

@gunr2171 In case you did not see buried in the comments, the question is just a parody of this question.

seeing there is the start of a flame war in the comments, I don't want to go anywhere near that post again

@gunr2171 Thanks. Can you flag this answer as NAA too? stackoverflow.com/a/27621020/993547
Thanks
 
@PatrickHofman flajjed
 
@PatrickHofman is it NAA? while it might be a copy-paste of another answer, it does attempt to answer the question
 
@DroidDev Thanks
@gunr2171 But is isn't an answer since it is copy/paste.
 
I'm not sure I understand that reasoning. Wouldn't it be better as a special mod flag saying it's a copy/paste answer?
 
@gunr2171 Okay, did that already, but it takes some time. We can handle this as a community too.
