Small PSA on post quality of late

There's been an insane amount of spam slipping through the net recently.

A polite reminder that this community is not a billboard for articles hawking diet pills, "lolz" videos, linking to blogs that do little more than repost other sites' content with no credit, etc.

As I don't have he inclination or patience to check out every link two things are going to happen:

1. This group is a community not a broadcast channel. It seems like most people don't get this. Please don't use this group as yet-another-place to "hit and run" a link to whatever blog post you've just written. Try to engender a debate, run polls, share tips and tricks, ask for help, interact with each other.

If you really must share a link to an article you've written PLEASE do more than paste the link: write a comment and frame the link with context, and make sure it's filled under the correct category. As harsh as it may seem I will ban those accounts — hint, hint betanews — that continue to flout this. You create work for me by not abiding by the rules. 100s of once-great communities have lost their value by being little more than a spam-attacked notice board.
2. Any post automatically flagged as spam and clearly off-topic / click hawking will be removed, and the poster banned. It's simply too much effort for too little reward to manually check.

It does seem to be the same 5/6 accounts pushing the same ol crud, so this should solve most of the issues.

A made a graphic… and then wrote a post so I could use it.
We show you how to disable the Ubuntu lock screen, adjust the inactive time before screen turns off, or use an app to solve both problems in one click!

File under crazy!

I don't use Windows 10 often enough to try this, but it's always easy to forget how much we Linux users take for granted the ease to which we can swap themes, icons packs, reshape our desktop. 
If you want to make Windows 10 look more like Ubuntu then check out Maverick, a Windows 10 visual style inspired by the Ubuntu Ambiance theme.

Road testing the latest daily build of VLC just got a whole heap easier on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS — a snap, you might say.
