Subject Wiki Spam Problems
Date Sat, 05 May 2012 05:00:05 GMT
Hi all,

spammers have started to use a new technique by reverting pages to the
revision that contains spam after we have fixed the page.  "Revert"
doesn't cause email notifications (I've asked infra to look into this).

Also they are now starting to use URL shorteners so blacklist will
become less useful - even if we start blacklisting all URL shorteners.

The approach recommended by infra is to set up a contributor group and
provide write access to the wiki only to people who join the list and
ask for it

What do you think?

Stefan
