Also, the website listed on the user's page is a page-rank inflator, so if a mod could get rid of that as well...
More tinned meat from this user
Will, I think locked and deleted by MathOverflow means the number of spam flags was high enough for this to be triggered by the website. If a mod locked it, it would have said their names.
@Andy: correct. On SE, users with 20,000 rep can vote to delete answers with a negative number of votes.
@Qiaochu: In the new Review page 20k users can cast delete votes even if the answer does not have a negative vote count.
I'm not sure if it's a bug or a feature, though.
We have 18 people with 20k or more. So we would need how many of the 18 to close an answer?
Actually we have less. After the migration only 15 (or 16 maybe?) users will have 20k+ reputation. One of the results of the great rep. recalc (questions become +5).
To delete an answer three users is enough. It requires awareness and willingness of these users. In MSE we had a group of 20 or so 20k'ers and most of them didn't really bother with the moderation tools, or at least with the deletion tab there.
Also, note that this is "delete an answer" and not "close an answer".
You always have the option of flagging for moderator attention in extreme cases. Since the relative dearth of answer-deleters hasn't been a problem until now, I doubt it will be a problem in the near future.
Helping out Andy Putman a bit with waging war:
answer seems purely for linkcreation to 'something' (I did not click through).
Also linked on user page.
Added: Mission completed, thanks to all that helped.
Like Scott says, your best bet for deleting answers is flagging for moderator attention. This is generally what is done on math.SE, for example. If you wanted answers to be deleted more quickly the straightforward solution would be to elect one or two more moderators.
While off-topic here I cannot help but notice what type of question attracted that users brilliant contributions.
I think I preferred the author of this piece of spam/dribbling when he was terrorising Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman...
Spam, or else someone who doesn't understand the concept of answering a given question.
There is new spam at:
as a new answer. I just flagged it and gather from Andy's various posts that it'd be helpful if other people do too.
Smells Like Sock Puppets
A repeat offender, IIRC
An "answer" that seems purely designe for link creation. Needs a couple of more flags. Thanks in advance.
This seems like spam
@Yemon: I vote to keep user accounts such as that.
Of course spam questions and answers should be deleted.
@geraldedgar - but the user account serves only to link to a website. The account itself is unquestionably spam.
Just noticed this. Is it desirable, or even possible, to nuke this?
Am out of spam flags, could anyone help with http://mathoverflow.net/questions/111287/about-fermats-last-theorem-closed
As far as I know he hasn't been banned (?recently?). He just posts in an odd rhythm.
We're having a little spam attack at the moment. I'm out of spam flags. This hasn't happened in a while.
