DEV Community

Discussion on: These days I see on dev: Hacktober completed + Spam messages 😁. Anyone with article?

Technically they're no spammers (they don't write "customer service number" following by a phone number which, if you call it, will incur a hefty charge on your phone bill).

But I agree this gets annoying pretty quick - sometimes just a title and no content at all, or one line - shouldn't impose some minimum requirements on an article?

I wonder what people posting these blurbs are meaning to achieve - are they so proud of their trivial accomplishment that they feel the urge to let the whole world know about it? I think just submitting your PRs to the Hacktober org is enough!
