What if an X company set a team against Ubuntu in it's more simple form, a cozy Q&A site to spam it and attack members in the rise to become valuable members?
With a clones attack of "new" users that could be disposable accounts, then start posting with this accounts all kind of questions based on the mentioned reference to get their attention and serve no purpose since new real users would be making other questions. And then start asking non-sense or too hard questions for no reason at all maybe reference from Unix or server fault.
In summary : What if there's some tactic to drive off new users out of the site campaigned by Company X?
Are there any mechanisms in AU or SE to combat dedicated spam accounts?
