We get a fair amount of spam here, ranging from people trying to promote their apps, to spammers posting links for specific products. We even get fairly frequent spam for spell-casters for hire (yes, I'm serious!).
The obvious spam that doesn't provide useful content is easy to handle. It just gets deleted as soon as a moderator or users with sufficient reputation notice it (don't forget to flag if you see posts like this!).
However, some of the posts are less obviously spam, in that they could be well-intentioned posts by new visitors who happen to have experience with a product that they feel may be helpful.
As an example, our question about How can I help my kids to sleep comfortably (and safely) on an overnight drive? received an answer almost 3 years later (which isn't unusual by itself). The answer is, however, recommending a specific product:
I can't imagine to tell you the countless trips I took with my kids, only to find them in the most uncomfortable positions while they fell asleep during the ride. I would use anything and everything I could find to wedge in between their heads and the seat belt or the chair in hopes of keeping them from slouching over. Nothing worked or only provided a temporary solution to this epidemic that is occurring.
There is a new product out called redacted which keeps that from happening. It has magnetic paws that attach comfortably around the neck and is self-supporting. It comes with a front pocket to store things or hands. It can be used with or without a booster seat & does not need to be attached to anything. Its for ages 3 & up. I saw some other links posted here to possible solutions so I figured to post one myself.
I know this post is old but maybe it will still link to some of the users. Hopes this helps in your search, that is if you haven't already found something.
(I have removed the name of the product, and the links, from this answer in case the decision is to delete the post altogether; I have also gone ahead and removed the links from the actual answer, in case it is spam)
Do we consider this spam, or do we trust that the poster had good intentions? Should answers like this be deleted? Left alone? Or edited to remove links and/or specific product names?
