That particular one is maybe the least bogus looking of the lot.
Nope. A long, long time ago Tim said he'd do something to mark such reviews as being by the author, so that we could take them with the appropriate amount of sodium chloride, but it didn't end up happening. Agreed with BarkingMatt that it's likely to backfire in the end, but that doesn't seem to stop anyone.
85 "reviews" of works by a new "LT Author" that are all written in the same sparse form (a few words, no capital letters or punctuation), all written within a few days of each other, all by members who joined in the same short time frame... and all the members have written only 1-2 reviews and have only a couple of books cataloged. And, for the icing on the cake, the reviews have multiple "thumbs up". No, I see no mystery here, but definitely a job for Jeremy.
On the other hand, this clears the board so that if serious members add it a new work without the spammy background will be created, and the author has absolutely no value for all the work done.
Once the indexes catch up it'll just have (far) fewer members and reviews.
While I appreciate the member's annoyance at Mr. Appel, that is just as inappropriate as posting the an image of cans of Spam® as an author image.
Infecting the site with garbage shouldn't be tolerated, whether from overenthusiastic authors or members who think they are "helping".
