Distinguish between the following, and flag the highest level of the violation:

-- Type 1: Irredeemable commercial spam: make sure to flag the member's profile, as well as the spammy activity. This type includes things selling strollers, pharmaceuticals, live-streaming sports games, porn, and/or trying to create traffic/links to sites for such things. Sufficient profile flags will automatically result in temporary suspension and deletion of the member's activity, so use your profile-flagging powers wisely and carefully.

-- Type 2: Teachable moments: DO NOT flag the member's profile, but DO flag the violating activity (e.g. self-promotional Talk post, group, or local venue). This type includes promotional activity that violates the Terms of Service (TOS), but where the member is potentially redeemable, e.g. overzealous authors, overzealous publishers, or other members with small TOS violations but who are otherwise using the site legitimately. These cases should be reported to staff (by sending a message or email to staff and/or or posting on this thread), so the member can be taught how to use the site.

Specific procedures:
-- Overzealous authors or publishers (these fall under type 2): do NOT flag the member's profile. Report to staff here or privately. You can also send the member a polite message pointing them to the terms, mentioning the "no promoting" language, and pointing them to the Do's and Don't page for authors:
-- Suspected sock-puppetry to promote a book, write fake reviews, and/or stack ratings: do not flag the profile, but report to staff here or by message, so staff can investigate. This is a serious violation for which members can be permanently banned.
-- Profile flags for commercial spammers only (type 1): On the member's profile page, click on the "report for spam" link, then follow instructions to flag the member. Again, this is only for commercial spam, not for "overzealous" authors, publishers, or booksellers, which should be reported to staff instead. See Talk post:
-- Spam or promotional posts in a Talk topic (type 1 or 2): flag the post as an abuse of the terms of service.
-- Spam or promotional groups (types 1 and 2): flag new groups using the "flag this group" link.
-- Spam lists: report in this thread, and flag the member if it's commercial spam.
-- Spam works (type 1 spam): flag the work as spam on the work's editions page, and then vote on proposed work spam. Make sure to read the guidelines before proposing or voting, especially for what is not spam. Voting page:
-- Spam in a review (type 1), or an explicitly promotional review (type 2): flag the review as an abuse of the TOS, using the red flag.
-- Spam or promotion in "published reviews," or other CK fields (type 1 or 2): post here and/or delete.
-- Spam or egregious promotion/advertising in venues or events (type 1 or 2): post here and/or delete. Note that authors are permitted to add events for their books.
-- Spam in book links / quick links: post here and/or edit to remove spam.
-- Spam author names listed on a work: No current procedure. Tim has asked us not to change CK to indicate spammers, and not to combine spam authors together.
-- Not sure if it's spam? Post here, and explain why.

Please note that Tim has asked us not to use either CK or the combining system (whether works or authors) for spam fighting.

Muokkaaja: syyskuu 1, 2016, 5:04 pm

I was, at least. Also I saw 2wonderY hit "LLC" which prompted me to try some other business types. "Inc." gave the really big haul. "Ltd." was pretty good too.

That's funny. It's been such a quiet afternoon, that I had done the same kind of term search that David did in #44.

Previously, I've done searches based on locations. Cities in India pay off pretty well.

ETA: Or the guy declined to renew the SEO contract after having been dumb enough to hire an SEO contractor. (That's always a bad idea)
Or a competitor in whatever snake-oil niche the guy's peddling to (didn't even bother to check).

As a rule of thumb: the mark generally doesn't have the wherewithal or the motivation to launch a counter-campaign (remember the Royal Nonesuch from Huck Finn?). And anyone who does is wise to the scam spotted from a mile away. You're almost certainly looking at either a competing established operator, or the same established operator.

Okay, so we have a legit book combined with a spam book (Due to ISBN). This probably needs separated but I'm not comfortable doing such due to not knowing where the spam voting will shift. I don't want it to stay with the legit book!

How are you getting members outside your own locality without editing your zip code?

Note, too, that those are sorted "semi-randomly", so if there are a large number of members in a locality, so zero book libraries are interspersed throughout the page. (Not to mention that it has that ever-annoying infinite scrolling which I would be thrilled to see banned from the internet.) If, instead, you do a member search and sort by "book count", zero book libraries will be at the end of the list.

syyskuu 8, 2016, 9:21 am

Ah! I did figure out the book count issue. But I've never tried that search you show in >203 davidgn:.

Muokkaaja: syyskuu 8, 2016, 9:23 am

I edit the location at the top, yes, for each city. (City and state suffice; no need for zip code).
And while it's true that the semi-random sorting (by some odd formula involving geographical distance, library size, and amount/recentness of activity) is annoying, the zero-library profiles do cluster together (smaller locations may have half a dozen or so clusters; major cities closer to 20). If you scroll down to the bottom until new profiles stop loading as the first step, you can see exactly how many clusters you're dealing with. ETA: There is a fixed cut-off radius from the point the system deems to be the epicenter of the search. Probably about 25 miles, if I had to guess.

I wasn't aware that it was possible to do a member search sorted by book count based on geographical criteria. (I suppose "place name" would work, but I'm going for the actual geocoding here--- lots of profiles display idiosyncratic verbiage to describe their location yet still map to a specific geographical coordinates behind the scenes).

>192 davidgn:, >200 gilroy:
I noticed that the title of the book does not match the title on the cover as shown on LT and Amazon. The actual book is Sexual Health in Drug and Alcohol Treatment: Group Facilitator's Manual by Douglas Braun-Harvey. It looks like they changed the title to the name of their facility, added their own author and just kept the cover of a real book. Not a legit book in my opinion.

>208 Taphophile13: The spam work borrowed the same ISBN, which originally linked the books and provided the cover.

I've separated the original work. It's safe to vote yes to suppress this book.

syyskuu 8, 2016, 10:07 am

>208 Taphophile13: It got separated from the actual book, so that's why it shows that now.

syyskuu 8, 2016, 10:08 am

syyskuu 8, 2016, 10:14 am

I think some people may have voted not to suppress the book because they have not seen the discussion here. It's a shame we can't point them here or give some reason why it really is spam.
