misusing instructables Answered

My husband and I caught this -

https://www.instructables.com/id/10000-Fast-Bad-Credit-Personal-Loans-Easy-To-Q/

posted as an instructable and it is obviously an attempt to sneak an ad in as an instructable.  One of the reasons we love this site is because you aren't flooded with ads and we both suspect you'd appreciate being notified.  I'm sure you will see it addressed promptly.  Thank you.

I have noticed few people using step by step tutorials to post pictures of themselves. I always flag them as "Incomplete".

You can always use the Flag button to notify those in charge about problems with a post (including it being blatant spam). I think they probably filter out a large number of spam post before we even get to see them but with the amount that get through it might be a good idea to revise the filter system used..

I am reliably informed that the percentage that slips through is very small.

A small percentage of something large is still something.

Have you hit the "flag" button to the top-right of the page?

HQ don't read these forums as often as they check the flag alerts.
