BestBuyTipsAndTricks spamming videos Answered

The account BestBuyTipsAndTricks just spammed the entire "Recent" page with a slew of pointless 30-second videos ("press the G key on your phone"), all with a nice large BestBuy logo as the image.

UPDATE 4:40 PDT:  And they're gone :-)

Too bad you can't flag user accounts.... I hope that one of Robot's minions puts the smackdown on Beast Buy.

When I checked, it looked like this account was part of a "sleeper cell" ;->  It was created in December 2009, with no comments and just two batches of nearly identical I'bles.  20 of them about Blackberries were uploaded in February, and another 20 today.  The previous batch of 20 were also flagged and removed (see pages 155-157 of the Recent I'bles listing).

I know how to do a binary search on a pre-sorted list, that's all :-)  It took me eight steps to get to the page for 5 Feb 2010, and one of those was wasted effort anyway.

Nevertheless, well played. They should give you a cut of the ad revenue that Robot's lawyers collect from BB.

Wow, kelseymh, you've turned into quite the Bug hunter.

And this one was really, really difficult to figure out.  I mean, who would ever have noticed all of those giant yellow logos?

yeah I know, they pretty much blend in against the white and oarnge backround of the site!

Yes, I've already flagged all of them.
