This post is a devrant related question for dfox and trogus.

What is the correct course of action if someone has quite a lot of low quality posts. I don't think naming anyone is necessary but the posts all follow a certain format

*title of post on news site* - link

Look, i'm all for posting whatever you want within reason so I suggested OP post said "rants" in the random category. Do you think maybe there is another category mor appropriate for such posts? What is the correct course of action if I find such a post in a category in which it doesn't belong, rant for example. Just downote as offensive/spam and move on, as I do with all memes that end up in rant? Should I alert the poster?

    @fuck2code we must cleanse the community with a witch hunt lmao.

    Understandable though. I don't think dfox and trogus would appreciate a mass downvote like this.

    If someone posts something as a rant that’s clearly spam/off-topic and mistagged, you can downvote it as spam. The kind of content you’re referring to seems to indicate spam/irrelevance. We have a pretty broad definition of what counts as a rant/story, but if it’s clearly not tech/dev/work related, or doesn’t tell some kind of story remotely related to the life of developers, then it probably shouldn’t be a rant. I think news of posts closely related to tech are ok, but there certainly shouldn’t be ones outside of that.

    @dfox the user in question posts links to articles that support a technology company he likes or undermines the credibility of its competitors. I suggested he post that kind of stuff in random since it is highly low effort and not what i'm looking for when I sort by rant. An example of such a post https://devrant.com/rants/2118915/...
    I am sorry if that suggestion was wrong and if necessary I will apologise to said user too.
