Recently in the Finnish-English forum there have been two instances of a party seeking help with a series of sentences. I can only assume that thet were hoping to get some free translation. And they did.

Don\'t people think that if such a phenomenon is evident, we should desist from helping out.

If you suspect something like this going on, just contact the moderator(s) for the language pair involved (there\'s a link at the bottom of each question that will take you to the mods list). If there is no moderator for that pair (as is the case for FIN>ENG), try contacting the moderator for the opposite pair.

What you should avoid is to try and \"organise\" opposition by posting comments to any of the questions. The problem with that approach is that it\'s quite often based on a quick conclusion that turns out to be incorrect. Unfortunately, the related disputes sometimes escalate into a \'mud-slinging\' exercise.
