This is the post history from a single user today:
We are getting spam from this and similar users advocating for the blackout. Now, I know it's important to get the word out on things that matter to us, but it's not OK (especially as mods) to spam communities you don't even participate in.
This is astroturfing and spammy. Period. As mods you should know better. Please stop.

Some subs also can't participate in the blackout.
The support subs have a duty to be there for their users.
Yes because getting zero updongs or one reply saying "Don't do it, you are loved" or getting spammed with the suicide hotline is going to bring folx back from the brink. Those subs should be shut down tbh.
Some big titty sub janny
+17 Then how about you report that user? Just because a mod did that doesn't mean it's an issue with mods. You're just grouping a large number of people together over the actions of one keyed on a tenuous link.
I had this issue 5 times in the last 48 hours in /r/Spain. 4 were confirmed mods, the other was an alt.
So yes, it is a mod problem.
And yes, I reported this. But it's both important for admins and mods to be aware of this issue.
-15 No, it's not a mod problem. Apparently it's a problem with the Spanish.
See what I did there, grouped an entire population together keyed on a tenuous link. If you have an issue with that, but can't see an issue with the way you're grouping them, then you're the problem.
None of those users were Spanish, by the way. Zero interaction in any community from Spain or Spanish speaking.
Again, if you fail to see an issue, i won't convince you otherwise, but getting mod spam is a problem.
Again, it's not mod spam. It's user spam. When you understand that, you'll be one step closer to the rest of what I said.
Nice aggressiveness. I already told you 4 confirmed mods did this as well. I will no longer reply to you.
A person that is a mod of completely different subs did it, but that doesn't make it a mod issue. Your complete and utter failure to realize that belonging to one group and doing something doesn't make it an issue from the entire group is telling. Typical Spanish belligerence.
Again: See what I did there, grouped an entire population together keyed on a tenuous link. If you have an issue with that, but can't see an issue with the way you're grouping them, then you're the problem.
