@RoryAlsop I just flagged this answer that is deleted as spam for mod attention: https://outdoors.stackexchange.com/a/18294/3602
@fgysin @ab2 @MichaelBorgwardt and anyone else that flagged it as spam: It is not spam, it is a notification that he translated the answer, wrongly posted as an answer instead of a comment (which he can't due to rep). This sends a very bad signal to a great user contribution.

@imsodin I voted to undelete. It sure didn't look like Farsi or any language. You can vote to undelete too.

@ab2 Farsi isn't supported in urls, that's why it looks like chaos. My problem is that deleting is fine, as it isn't an answer, it should be a comment or possibly an edit on shemseger's answer, but deleting it as spam without any comment to a potential new user is bad. I still voted to undeleted as well, just to bring it to attention and maybe get a comment in on it.

@imsodin it is definitely not an answer that is acceptable. I'll move it to a comment on Shem's answer
it is a bit spammy - as its only aim is to drive traffic to his blog
 
Thanks!
My reasoning was, that he never hid that it is his own and it is not just a re-post, he did actual work with the translation. However I agree it is not likely, that anyone profiting from a translation will come across it, this question and TGO in general being an English speaking community.
