14 Oct 2018 - vandalism
Can you see about setting up blocks on:
Vandalising / spamming: Platforms_and_Sites
19 October 2018 New user registrations / spamming
Looks like you might already be blocking some of these, I'm learning the spam tools.
yup, hate spammers with a passion. I added an antispam tool, currently the 7-day free trial, but it already caught a bunch of them. Am out for the weekend, will check for alternative/floss solutions after that, but if this works, I'll happily pay the 7 bucks per year they are asking for :)
Cleanup was thankfully fast. Appreciate the assistance. Did you see my Diaspora post or discover it yourself? Seems we both hit this at the same time. --Dredmorbius (talk) 10:16, 19 October 2018 (CEST)
I saw the G+ post about it, then looked at the Recent Changes page and got quite a shock.. let's hope that tool helps. --JollyOrc (talk) 10:26, 19 October 2018 (CEST)
Ah, so the secret SpaceAlienCat Signal worked! Took me a few minutes to work out a rhythm. Tree-style tabs and some fast mouse clicking and badda boom badda bing! Nuked the user pages, may look at further cleanup.
Bitcoin and gambling seem to be most of the spam. Someone also tweaked the PlexodusWiki:About page, which I didn't realise we had until now. So spammers and vandals are good for something. --Dredmorbius (talk) 10:39, 19 October 2018 (CEST)
