Is there a way to report repls?

A couple of my friends were sent a repl.co link that contains a "Facebook" sign in area, I was just wondering if it is possible to report these types of repls, as they are obviously data phishing.

If you do know of a way to report repls, can you please reply.

We took this down and many many others. We're also building better tools for moderation and detection. Thanks!

@amasad is copying MOST of a repl considered to be something that should be reported? I

Your friend has changed that repl to a tictactoe game, but I can see that they have about a bajillion tic tac toe games on their profile.

@heyitsmarcus I'm betting that one of their many repls is another Facebook phishing scam, though. They're definitely heavily abusing this system. I've sent a tweet to the people behind Repl.it so we'll see what happens here.

@heyitsmarcus I would assume there are many others also abusing the system. I hope something can be done to combat the problem.

@BenWharton I wouldn't doubt it. We need a way to not only report specific repls but also profiles.

@BenWharton i just went through about 60 of those repls and couldn't find a Facebook one. There's way too many for me to go through each one, when they'll likely just change it again soon, and add more repls. :\

@heyitsmarcus I suspect that the Facebook area is a sub page of the tictactoe game, because adding "
