Downvote, Report it, and move on. Not much can be done from the user side.

It's just too bad. They are spamming from so many different instances. I'm assuming ones with open registration turned on. So they can't ban in bulk. Also why is it just this community getting hit like this?

it's not just this community getting hit.

it's mostly [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected], though some of the latest spam also started arriving in [email protected]

  1. Be civil: we're here to support and learn from one another. Insults won't be tolerated. Flame wars are frowned upon.

  2. No spam posting.

  3. Posts have to be centered around self-hosting. There are other communities for discussing hardware or home computing. If it's not obvious why your post topic revolves around selfhosting, please include details to make it clear.

  4. Don't duplicate the full text of your blog or github here. Just post the link for folks to click.

  5. Submission headline should match the article title (don’t cherry-pick information from the title to fit your agenda).

  6. No trolling.
