@SmokeDetector naa- user has spammed their website before, but disclosure is fairly clear in this case.
 
@cigien User is blacklisted (15901118 on stackoverflow.com).
 
@SmokeDetector tpu
 
@cocomac Registered answer as true positive and blacklisted user.
 
@SmokeDetector tpu- Actually, tp is more appropriate for this non-answer, given the history of spam from the user. Custom flagged.
 
@cigien If they have a history of spam, why is tp better...?
 
3:46 AM
@cocomac The history of spam suggests that the user is much more interested in driving users to their website, rather than contributing to the site, especially given that one must go to the site to get any useful content. If the answer included useful content in addition to linking to the site, I would go with fp.

@cocomac No worries. I realize that message was confusing. I tend to use tp when talking about feedback, since that's all that matters to SD. Also, you can use tp and tpu pretty interchangeably (apart from the case of vandalism), and you can always just give tp feedback if you're unsure whether a user should be blacklisted.
 
@cigien All good, I was just confused about tp v. tpu in that message, but that makes sense
