Ethereum probably has as many interested developers as it does people interested in ways to make a quick buck off of potential victims.
There have been a number of questions I have witnessed, which could be malicious in nature:
- Asking for help with smart contracts which are ponzi schemes
- Asking for help with Web3.js front ends which make it easy for a user to accidentally send a transaction to a specific address
- Asking for help with a smart contract which has a backdoor to access funds
- Verifying the behavior of broken/malicious smart contracts
Generalizing this: users may ask legitimate questions, but we may be able to tell that helping this user could harm others.
Should we still help these users with their legitimate Ethereum questions?
Should we flag the post? Downvote it?
Looking to see what the community thinks here.
