Is just downloading and uploading other people's scripts. Isn't giving any credit to authors nor is he/she saying what the script does.

This tool has started spamming 'youtube download' scripts with his commercial software.

Edit....

I thought I was doing due diligence by flagging spam, until I realized 30% off all comments are spam.......gave up lol

What about a "Report Comment" or "Report Script" type thing.
This will be something really helpful to the site

I'm also going to be writing a script that will attempt to autoflag Orkut spammers based on the @includes of their scripts.

The amount of spam that's on this site at the moment is really quite ridiculous. Just opening my live bookmark of recent forum posts and I can see immediately that a large proportion of recent posts are spam; generally either about converting files or buying cheap designer goods.

I know that after a while these topics are usually removed, but this delay and the amount of junk posts on this site has been really putting me off recently. I don't usually track spam topics and posts on the forums, but with the comments on my own scripts they change rarely enough that I can see that sometimes it takes days or weeks for spam to be removed after I've flagged it. Sometimes it never gets removed.

I can see changes happening on this site, and I'm a big fan of these improvements, but I feel somewhat that the new extra features are slightly ruined by the amount of junk that pulls the site down. Surely it would be preferable to stay where we are but maintain a tidy, spam-free site than to have a site that works amazingly but is riddled with junk.

Let's vote for these:

 
ScroogeMcPump Scriptwright

laborone, mimi, wengbaoshan, AmyC, and tradefaye also need to be banned.

And why should I have to click on a spam forum message just to get a user's ID# to post here? Why aren't the names in the topic lists clickable?

 
ScroogeMcPump Scriptwright

jinmu also needs to be banned.

I think they are all gone now

Looks like you missed one in Script development - https://userscripts-mirror.org/forums/1/topics/2855

Also, in Banana Bar, the sixth topic down (presently) appears to have negative one post - https://userscripts-mirror.org/forums/4/topics/2830

On the subject, you don't class all of those video converter things as spam? They appear to be dressing the posts up as a discussion, but it just appears to me to be plain advertising, which isn't what I think these forums (even the off-topic banana bar) are all about.

@znerp, removed, plus I do consider those things spam... it is confusing why there appears to be converstations around them. Perhaps I make a forum called "Video" and people can talk there?

I think I killed most of them.

The negative number was because I destroyed all the posts in the topic but not the topic itself. There isn't an auto-callback (yet) to destroy the parent.

spam commenter: https://userscripts-mirror.org/users/53684

Also appears to have some questionable scripts and a spam forum post.

 
steeev Scriptwright

this user https://userscripts-mirror.org/users/53684/ and all his spam comments
https://userscripts-mirror.org/users/53684/comments need to be deleted
i flagged a couple of his comments on 2 of my scripts ages ago, but they havent been deleted yet

 
Jesse Andrews Admin

@steeev, I do apologize. I wanted to make sure not to delete comments that were on his own scripts (which I agree are questionable). I have removed those comments not on his scripts and have talked with him about stopping the spamming of others lest I take more extreme actions.

I was just looking up a script of Henrik's for this topic (this script here), and it looks like it's been duplicated here with one very minor change.

That user seems to have modified it and used it for a number of other applications which is fine but I'm not sure about the original duplication of Henrik's script.
