I just noticed that a user Mudit Kapil is spoiling good answers. Just look at edit history.

https://askubuntu.com/a/576229/167850

and others. You can just search his last edits.

Not removing them, but just adding rubbish there.

I rolled them back.

Is there a way for moderators to stop it?

  • This seems bizarre - why would they do that? Seems like those edits were not intentional. Also, that question has 4 upvotes, and some of his other answers have upvotes, yet they only have 1 rep? – Carl H Jun 8 '15 at 6:35

    1 reputation is because the account is temporarily blocked. – Pilot6 Jun 8 '15 at 8:18
  • The answer you were mentioning is an almost verbatim copy of the site the second (later) answer points to - without any reference. – guntbert Jun 8 '15 at 19:45
  • Have you considered asking him (her, them, it) what happened? The answer maybe "Sorry, I left my laptop logged in and my cat walked on the keyboard." I only say this because my cat has walked on my keyboard, and hit what you would think was an awfully unlikely set of keys. – rmustakos Jun 8 '15 at 21:06
  • This happened yesterday, when did the other edits happen? (That does look like cat typing, or kid typing) – rmustakos Jun 8 '15 at 21:09

    All edits were at the same time within a half hour. You can't accidentally find all your answers and edit. – Pilot6 Jun 8 '15 at 21:11

    Perhaps they left their computer unattended, and someone went in and edited? Might be worth a moderator checking the IP they used at the time of the edits, and the IP they usually use. – AStopher Jun 9 '15 at 9:50
  • @cybermonkey :) that is highly unlikely. – don.joey Jun 9 '15 at 9:55

    Has anyone asked @mudit-kapil what the story is? It's highly unlikely that someone would purposely destroy their own answers. I'd be more inclined to believe that there was some sort of security breach (stolen password, left system logged in, in an insecure location) – Elder Geek Jun 9 '15 at 21:34

    Mudit gone on another rampage? Last time I spent a good while rolling back his changes, following the feed, and flagged one post. – muru Jun 11 '15 at 0:31
