Spammers

I've just noticed another Spammer (Nikita2045) has appeared on the Wiki and left another random message. I know that when the Admin has time they do get dealt with, but wondered if this thread could be of use to flag them up if we see them. May just help a little.

Cheers,

Elliot.

No, I've not touched it at all. Was just posting up about it really. Has it disappeared now then?

I wouldn't do that to be honest until I'd spoken to the boss first.

Just checked and it's still there. Very odd one indeed.

I just deleted it and blocked the user. Unfortunately with an "open" system we'll just have to keep eyes open.

Users should be able to "revert" changes but if a deletion, etc. needs done then just let me know. Either in this thread or by PM. I'll have a look and see if there's some sort of "Report This" button that could be implemented.

Wearing another hat I am involved in a number of Open Source Software projects. One of them had so many automated sign-up-then-spam (also known as "drive by edits") on the wiki that we had to lock the thing down and restrict who could edit and administer it.

That action sort of defeats the object of a wiki in the first place, but the devious people behind this stuff put content in which is then pulled in and included in botnet spam runs - it means they can command the bots under their control to pull in content and send it, rather than having to feed them by hand. We didn't like that, so took the only option we had available to us.

On the plus side, it has meant that we also no longer get edits made by new members which are fundamentally flawed, so we can all sit a bit easier at night

If it gets to be a significant problem then I'll look at a few options such as having people register on Tenths first, or put recaptchas all over the place to discourage edit 'bots.

Thanks for looking into it. I'd noticed the other ones that had appeared and then you'd deleted. It'd be a shame for them to take over and hide the real stuff.

A "Report this" button would be good if possible. I don't want your inbox to fill up with reports of the Spam from many different users, so if we help police it, should we report them here for now or leave them to you to find and eliminate? I only ask because I wouldn't want to overstep the mark and becoming annoying lol.

Elliot.
