Getting rid of the wiki spammers
« on: August 29, 2007, 12:15:11 pm »
Could somebody please get rid of the accounts that are regularly being used to add spam to the wiki?  Preferably blacklisting the email domains from where they registered.

I, for one, won't be removing anymore spam unless at least some form of action is taken.

Yeah, and it's just the same few accounts over and over again. 

I have decided to add the pages to the "Spammed" category instead so they will be easier to find once the accounts have been blocked.

I would like to help and add few more security features and harden WIKI against spam. Who is main admin responsible for WIKI?

Just check this out: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Special:Log/newusers - these are 95% spammers.
