I don't think we have setup deleting pages to require special permissions yet. 
Although I'd need to do a test to be sure.

I agree. We should just go ahead and delete these pages.

I don't recall if deleting pages requires special privileges. I think it does. 
If so, anyone who has that privilege is trusted to exercise it appropriately. 
Don't worry about getting a consensus about whether something is spam: if you 
know it when you see it, just kill it.

A borderline case would be someone who uses their user profile to promote 
their web development services. I would be more lenient for that sort of thing 
from an active contributor than from someone whose only contribution is their 
profile page.

This is not a borderline case.

Hi, everyone:



I was just looking over some of the new contributions. A lot are great.



One group of articles created, however, look like spamdexing to me.[1] At the 
least, it contains verbatim content that has not been attributed.



Do we have a process for dealing with inappropriate content? Should I just 
delete the pages?



Thanks.



Julee
