@rene I guess we talked about this quite a few times in this room.
I made this feature request, but did not get much support: Change reputation required to post on meta back to 5 reputation points (I got response from Shog9 that the preference is not to do change it.)
There is this FAQ post: What are the reputation requirements for privileges on sites, and how do they differ per site? It lists several exceptions where a user with reputation 1 can posts no a per-site-meta.

[ SmokeDetector | MS ] Bad keyword with email in body (55): A better way to stop fake registrations on Joomla forums?‭ by Rob Mousley‭ on joomla.SE
 
@rene Relevant discussion in teams: Are we not scanning per-site metas? Should we? (Posted by tripleee.)
 
@MartinSleziak well ... that is unfortunate ...
 
I certainly did not want to blame Shog9. (You can have a look at their response in full, so that I do not misrepresent what Shog9 said.) The feature request was completely ignored by the MO mods - if the mods do not care about spam posts on their meta site, why should SE cater about that.
Anyway, the issue whether MO.meta allows posting from 1 reputation point or from 5 reputation points is site-specific. I suppose the post in the Charcoal team (about scanning per-site-metas) is more relevant - that one is about the network as a whole.
In any case, I only came here to report that single post - sorry for the digression.
(I should add that I understand that there are some advantages to allowing 1-rep users to post on meta.)
 
9:29 AM
@MartinSleziak there isn't much we can blame Shog9 for (if we use his name 9 times, he will still show up in chat).
 
Yes, I just wanted to qualify what I wrote a bit. (Since my message might have sounded as something painting them in bad light.)
Now I am not sure - is it publicly know who Shog9 is? (I wasn't sure whether to use he/she/they.)
 
I've seen him, and I'm sure that was a he.
 
@MartinSleziak Shog is no longer with us, so it might be possible to change that. Wouldn't hold my breath though.
 
Thanks! (Although I will probably forget again until the next time when some post by Shog9 is discussed.)
 
There are more policies based on posts of them that no longer fully apply.
 
9:34 AM
@Mast Well, first I would need som support on MO and among the MO mods - and I did not manage to get even that. (Probably it was a bit premature that I asked Shog9 in the discussion that I linked.)
 
Yes, that would help a great deal :-)
 
In any case, all of this is tangential to charcoal - whether MathOverflow (or some of the other sites that allow posting on meta from 1 rep) change the reputation requirement for posting on meta is mainly the issue of that site.
 
Yes.
 
In any case, it is probably not that serious issue. If we consider data from SEDE as reliable, there were about 50 posts on MathOverflow.Meta that were flagged as spam: data.stackexchange.com/meta.mathoverflow/query/1456632/…

@Mast Plagiarism's worse, at least spam's pretty easy once you've identified a spammer.
It is, admittedly, sometimes a bit tricky to identify.
I do believe that SO is pretty unique among user-contributed-content sites in how little spam there is that stays up.
and how clever spammers need to be to slip it past us
If you search for the spam we nuke immediately on, say, Quora... google.com/…
 
That's a lot of results for such a specific query.
Yikes.

@SmokeDetector fp- I am not a spammer.
 
@RyanM User blacklisted (6787390 on stackoverflow.com).
 
they are though
although that's going to report their questions, isn't it.
ugh.
last seen 5 years ago...meh.
 
@RyanM User removed from blacklist (6787390 on stackoverflow.com).
 
Okay, the remaining 6 posts linking it on SO appear to be non-spam.

@SmokeDetector Looks to be the second spam answer on that question in the last day
 
@DavidW Might want to protect the question then, so there's a minimum rep requirement of 10.
