Spam on this poor page

For some reason, this page seems to be in some dude's spam database. See [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], and [10]. I'd imagine that the IPs are all spoofed (WHOIS:[11], [12], [13], [14], [15], [16], [17], [18], [19], and [20].) Any ideas? -- Tom 13:58, 23 Feb 2005 (MST)

I think you should try protecting the page for a few days and see if that helps. I know, this would prevent most people from editing the page, but it never really gets edited anyway (looking at the edit history, it has only had two good edits this month), so I don't think it will be that big of a deal.

You could probably just protect this page indefinitely. There's nothing really for anyone to add to this page. But then again, whoever's doing this could just switch to trolling a page that needs constant updating that wouldn't be able to be protected... meh... →evin290 16:40, 23 Feb 2005 (MST)

See, that's my problem though. I don't like protecting pages like this. And evin290's right, they could do it to any page.
There's talk of how MediaWiki 1.4 will add a "nofollow" attribute to external links. I don't know if I like that idea either, but I don't think it will be much of a deterrent. -- Tom 09:39, 24 Feb 2005 (MST)
Considering that they're now hitting us like mad, it might be a good idea to close it anyway. Whenever there's a problem over at Wikipedia that is similar to this, it gets closed temporarily... --Shadow Hog 12:04, 24 Feb 2005 (MST)
