This user (From Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India) seems to make entries in bursts:
Latest is a new Discussion about Car rentals. Seems to be an excerpt from his website with a link to the full article.
Was a new user about a month ago. Does not seem to be very TLX related.
Any thoughts?

Next time try and give us a link.

https://www.tlxforums.com/threads/deviation-of-most-frequent-mistakes-in-car-rental.43983/

A post about rentals by itself is certanly OK. But when we see he is promoting Shifa Travel Agency, that is not allowed by our rules. You have two choices. As moderator you have to decide if his post is relavant to the users here, and if so, then you can delete his blog link and his promotion to Shifa Travel at the bottom of his message along with a warning/infraction to him that this is not allowed. Or, if you beleive him to be just a spammer you can soft delete his message and just ban him. He does have 12 posts to his credit which appear somewhat relavant, when I looked quickly. If you delete his advertising and link in his message and give him an infraction, he likely won't come back because he is likely only here to advertise his blog and travel company. Either way you want to handle this as a moderator is perfectly OK with me.

Good question and good job!

I will "practice" the Mod tools on this user to get a little experience.
Time to reread the Training Manuals!

Many more posts from this user. I sent a warning. If this behavior continues, I suggest one additional Warning, and then Ban would be next.
Any thoughts?

I looked further into the MOD Training threads and I could not find a way to "edit" his signature. Could this be in the ModCP? The link provided fails.
Oops! We ran into some problems.
The requested page could not be found.

You are doing good. If you can't edit his signature, let him know it is unacceptable and to delete it or he will be banned. Let him do it.

I also sent this directly to him:

Thank you
The underlined/bold addition to the first rule should be considered as an addition to the Forum rules

I see he has taken out his signature. But you realize that the picture and READ MORE in his thread are both links to his web site.I would suggest you edit each of his threads and remove the link in the picture and the READ MORE link in each thread as these are both violations (advertising). Or, you can let these threads just die out, which it appears to be doing as nobody has commented on them (who on this board intends to rent a car in India?). Anyway, however you want to handle it, is OK with me. After a while you'll learn which users are worth working with and which are best to just ban them. Good Job!

I "UnApproved" all his "Read More" posts. They will not be visible to the public.
