There's at number of fake language decks for Chinese users on AnkiWeb, see eg. here. Same notes, media, garbage reviews, etc. If it's a dedicated spammer, maybe best to shadowban. A report function would also be nice, as it would be useful to flag a number of empty decks.

    The audio appears to differ per language, so I don't think it's safe to label the decks fake, but I've made a note to look into the fake votes - thanks for letting me know.

    I think this should probably get a boost in priority given this new review on the Hebrew deck:

    This is straight up stolen from Rosetta Stone.

    Even worse, the pirate is only an intro and you need to add someone on wechat for full pricing... Shady.

    抄袭Rosetta Stone 结果还只给个20课中的一课 还要加微信付钱 什么鬼

    IOW, AnkiWeb is currently hosting pirated IP.

    Thanks for letting me know, I've taken them down.
