The Wiki spammer is back
Jul 2nd, 2007 at 4:05pm
 
I hate to tell this to you guys, but the Wiki spammer is back. This time, he vandalized the main page. See here: http://www.slinging.org/wiki/index.php?title=Special:Recentchanges

I removed his junk, but he'll be back. This time, he obviously creates user accounts for himself.

I needed to revert it again. Could someone block the user "ZskKqv"? (If possible I wouldn't delete the user, just block it. Else I fear a new account would be generated automatically).

And here's a link for the aardvark that is curious what a vandalized page looks like:

What can we do against the spammer?

This Wiki spammer is becoming a mayor annoyance. What can we do to keep him off the Wiki? Where does this jerk come from (you got his IP addresses, right)? What are other Wikis doing against spam attacks like this?

Sent a message to Matthias and Chris -- one of them should be able to block this bozo.

I just reverted another vandalism attempt on the main page. I hope I did everything right.

Reverted yet again. Hopefully an admin will soon ban the two vandals. The guilty parties are:

ZskKqv - vandalism and spam
FagHf7 - vandalism (same modification as ZskKqv)

Funny how appropriate (in a childish way) that the second user name is, considering it is probably just a random bunch of characters.

He's back again. He sets up junk accounts and spams the wiki. This time, his name is "EtoBqi" aand he spammed the Cestrosphendon page.

Can we set the software to refuse (or at least report) edits with too many links in them? If he can't post links to spam anymore, he will probably go away.

I guess "he" is a bot.

I made another spam revert a few minutes ago. It was the Cestrosphendon page again.
