Noticing a trend of new accounts appearing, posting generic tea-related copypasta and non sequiturs for a few weeks, often seemingly written by a bot and/or akwardly run through google-translate, before switching to equally non sequitur link-posting for their SEO or marketing efforts, or whatever. Sigh.

or new accounts listing 'health benefits' bullet points

imho... tea health posts/threads outside of academic-style discussion (preferably with links to peer reviewed articles) should be considered spam and deleted/banned

Proper discussions can be taken down in a moment but the spam is still there? Oh boy.
