    What 😳.

    That is completely wrong.
    It's a bot. 

    Please report them under the 'technical disruption' or 'spam' or 'non moneysaving' with an explanation of why the post is wrong so the forum team can remove it.  (If we're not specific then the posts stay up.  Which isn't too much of a problem when it's benign, generic, not-helpful 'advice', but is a problem if they're posting just plain wrong info that would confuse or misdirect people.)
    There's a thread on Site feedback about how to report posts that you think are created by a bot:

    HI

    I’m afraid using the spam button in this way is strictly against our rules and will often result in an infraction. Members have been banned in the past for using the spam button improperly.

    While we realise members are trying to find ways to help the forum, we have dealt with situations in the past were members on two sides of an argument use the spam button to register ‘dislike’ of members on the other side they disagree with - Using the button maliciously to remove posts that don't break our rules in any way. 

    So we have to be extremely clear that the Spam button must be used only on posts that are clearly spam. All other posts must be reported to the Forum Team so we can look at the situation and take the appropriate action based strictly on our rules and guidelines.

    -------------------------


    Please note the comment above from MSE_Stephen from another thread on the Site feedback board regarding the use of the spam button.
    I wouldn't like anyone to fall foul of MSE rules when trying to do the right thing.

    The thread that contains the comment I quoted is here:

    I don't believe this is specifically in MSE rules but maybe it should be...

    Sorry I didn't mean the spam button, I meant the spam option under the 'report' feature which gives you the box to write specific info.
