What's up with all the customer support number posts?

Since Hacktoberfest started, I feel like the number of random, or 'spam-like' posts has increased a lot...

Any ideas what we can do about this?

Hello! On behalf of the DEV team, thank you for your help in surfacing and reporting these accounts.

Our team is both proactively seeking these accounts out and responding to complaints around the clock. We are also talking through a more permanent fix but in the meantime, we are banishing users and their posts/comments from the site as we find them.

Thanks again for your help in making DEV a positive, helpful, and spam-free environment for all!
