Dealing with Shills

It's come to our attention that some folks are creating fake accounts to hawk their wares here on the Buzz. We take the use of fake accounts very seriously and will ban accounts that are being used to promote products/services or setup to inflame discussions. We have various tools to detect these accounts but sometimes it takes some time to research each account to determine if the account is legit or not. I've asked our volunteer Buzz Crew members to pull any suspicious posts to the side so we have time to investigate each issue on a case-by-case basis. So if you see a post and it magically disappears for a short bit, it's highly likely we are investigating issues related to the post. Thanks for understanding, your patience and for entrusting us to keep this place civil and free of shills.

If you suspect an account is being used by someone with nefarious intent, please report the post by clicking on the icon to the left of the post that looks like this . We can then investigate and see if the account appears legit or not.

Thanks for helping us keep things clean around here.
