Advertisment Bots


Recently, some malicious users or bots have created a bunch of phony pages in the User: Namespace filled with adverts and links to possibly malicious sites. I think it's important for these to be removed. See here to see them.

Have you let DOM know?? 

Yeah, the problem has been rectified now. All's clear!


This problem is showing up in other forum message boards hosted by other services. One forum I am an admin at has been seeing adspammers who are not only able to evade the Captcha device, they also are getting past email verification in setting up a user account.

It is a pain to deal with, and we're not sure what a long term solution is unless the host of the forum servers makes modifications to deal with these latest evasions. Just a FYI.
