Is this considered spam?

Check out his messages.

[EDIT]
I've removed 2 copies already and moved 1 from the newbie board to the marketplace. The last one I split from another topic and moved to the marketplace.

It is certified and 'organic' spam.
Better to remove those postings ( wastage of whatever resource it takes).

Is this spam? I already deleted 4 similar messages form the same user spread all over the board.

I'll let this last one be for now (edited out email address).

Shouldn't we define what is acceptible and what not? There are several cases in which I'm not sure...

The same spam message has now been posted at least 11 times by user bm12. Perhaps you can ban by i.p. address or email or some such thing, to prevent reposting under various new user names? I will delete the posts by bm12.

I've just banned user bm12 (bi_m_3@yahoo.com; Last IP: 59.93.205.56).

This user will not be able to post further messages nor register another account with the same E-mail address.

Heehee. Rolling Eyes The spammers are getting slow. It took 4 whole hours to get my first spam PM. Turned off PMs, of course. So, that takes care of that. Any need to report the user id of the spammer? If you're a mod, just look in my PM folder. It's the only message there.

You'd best report it to Frank Naude via PM. He can ban spammers. Ordinary mods cannot look in your PM and I think Frank can't/won't.

Yes, private messages are private. Nevertheless, I would appreciate if you can forward the spam messages to me so we can deal with them.

Note that there are some spammers lately that use 'intelligent' spam. They advertise sites in the following manner:

Does anyone know where I can get more information about <topic>? Somebody recommended www.<topic>.com to me.

I removed quite a number of these lately. I noticed them because the poster posted several different (non-Oracle related) <topic> versions, but with exact the same message.

And another one: larryphones. He has one message left in the Portuguese forum but I don't have any moderator rights there, so if anyone of you moderators see a chance to get rid of that message, be my guest.

I deleted them myself.
Ah well, I don't expect him to be held back because his userid was deleted..
