Raspberry Pi LogoRaspberry Pi is loved by computer geeks all around the world, every programming office should have at least one lying around, if not, it is a bad sign. That being said, Raspberry Pi on Twitter slammed an SEO for crying about link spam.

In short, the spammer injected links in the Raspberry Pi forum and now the spammer got penalized by Google for doing so. They are now asking Raspberry Pi to remove the links but Raspberry Pi told the spammer, "stick their spam up their behinds."

Here are the tweets, it starts with this one.

Heck, we all get these requests but this may be one of my favorite responses yet. Good for you!

That's the best response. :) Spammers should be tormented in this way only. #Ilikeit It would be helpful if Raspberry Pi would disclose the name of the Company so that their clients could know whom they are dealing with and even in future many probable companies who will contact them for SEO or marketing services could be aware of them. Thanks for sharing Barry. :D Can't stop laughing :P

Is raspberry pi even relevant anymore? I thought this flash in the pan would be dead by now as there are better alternatives around.

Good to see so many white hat SEOs applauding Rasberry's actions. Especially Harsh Wardhan, who I believe hasn't ever spammed.

Shame they can just disavow the URL and RR it really ;) Then again thats assuming the spammers actually have a clue about RRs and disavowing links ;)
