    Getting Advice on Other People's Texts

    A member has been posting multiple texts apparently written by other English learners on the Ask a Teacher forum. I'm finding these posts confusing, as the poster seems to vacilate wildly in his/her level of English. I'm happy to help learners but this member's posts are hard to address positively.

    Would the moderators consider asking such a member to refrain from posting texts on behalf of others? It might be better if the people this member is posting for got their own accounts.

    I didn't know whether naming keannu would be appropriate. In a number of posts, keannu has revealed that the posted texts were written by others. It looks like he or she is assisting other learners, which is of course laudable. I think it would be better, both for the forum and for the other learners, if each learner got their own account.

    I don't know whether or not keannu is asking questions on behalf of others, but he is certainly choking up the Ask a Teacher forum at times. At one time this morning, as I mentioned in one of his threads, twelve of the first fifteen posts in that forum were from hm.
