1. This is the wrong section. In fact, there isn't a section, if there's a problem with a user you report it.

2. That link doesn't work.

3. Lots of users only post in Graal, it's the biggest thread on the forum.

You dont find it even remotely strange that someone posts piles and piles of messages in multiple threads which are all about the same game?
Everything to keep the topic on the front page to draw in buyers. Or at least it seems so.

It would be nice to have an option to ignore threads as a whole.

That's really not that bad...I'm pretty sure he's not just spamming the thread, but providing help and comments about the game since Graal is one of the most popular and feature-full online game on the iOS. Calm down.

Not even slightly in the case of Graal. For other games, yeah it'd be weird, but Graal is the Runescape of the App Store. It's got a huge following and there are a lot of users in there with little to no posts outside of that topic.

We frequently ban people who are surreptitiously promoting their own games. We have also banned developers from the site and closed down discussion about their games.

If you see a suspcious user, please report them via the "report post" button on each post. We will look into it and take action as necessary.

As others have noted, some games simply have enthusiastic fans about the games.
