Hi Meyer, I liked the comment about cutting down trees with a herring!
Lets hope that someone among the admins recruits some help.
My idea would be that we recognise the bots and indefinite ban them and carry on doing that until they are all dead!
Of course that would only be a real solution if they also going to leave anonymous editing turned off and made the registering much harder for non-humans.!
See you later!Tux 06:41, 26 September 2007 (EDT)
- Glad you liked the herring line, but I stole it from Monty Python. ;)
- Something definitely needs to be done about the spambots. It's embarrassing how vulnerable the wiki is. The only problem with banning is I'm sure the bots are already smart enough to come back with a new user name and IP address.
- There are a number of things that can be done, including my personal favorite of installing the Wikipedia AntiSpamBot (fight fire with fire), but they all involve the wiki administrators, and I can't say how high the wiki is on their list of priorities. At least DK seems to be looking into the problem.
- Back to the despamming. Keep fighting the good fight.

Congratulations Meyer on the sysop=admin bit! Hope I'll be able to cope with the sysop/bureaucrat stuff. Wish me luck. Tux 06:41, 26 September 2007 (EDT)
