As a general rule, I think anything involving a link to kickstarter is a likely candidate to be zapped!

Hold it other admins. I checked some of their climber logs which appear legit. Same goes for most of the photos.

Had they not contributed anything it would be a different story. The reason we zap people with links with no content is because almost always are those same individuals spammers or using SP for profit.

I say give this person a chance.

It's long-winded, but it's still link spam.

Two more recent articles like that, both with "holiday" in the title.
