Creating accounts for advertising purposes


There are many accounts on Osm that are created just for advertising purposes.

For example 1, 2, 3,… Unfortunately there are many others,

I think all these accounts should be deleted (And can we know the list of admin who have this right).


I normally report spam accounts in #osm-dev in IRC. The admins are active in that channel and spam accounts do get deleted.

@SomeoneElse: Thanks for your reply but I don’t use IRC. A simple search on google shows that this phenomenon seems to be greater than I thought, (accounts with links to pornographic sites).
