I noticed this morning that a new user, user85896, which was created "today", has posted three answers that are obviously spam and one that I flagged as link-only, which should probably have been spam as well.

I don't have the rep to do anything about this, but I'm posting it here so someone with a decent amount of rep can take the appropriate action, if it is warranted.

Status: Completed. Thanks for the heads up.

  • Thanks for the confirmation. I wasn't sure if this was the correct thing to do or if there was some other way I should handle it.

  • A meta post will work, but generally speaking, since obvious spam doesn't really need a lot of meta discussion, 'flagging' the post would have a more effective way of letting someone know in a timely manner. Regards. Commented Jul 25, 2014 at 14:51
