Yep. I have the same concerns. This is an automated attack.

Good news: Since the introduction of new politics on wiki. The are
decresing the ranking list. Yesterday for "emmss" was 17,700 pages. Before
going to sleep there was 16,600. And now are: 19,300 links on google:

As far as other wiki sites does not start fight against abuse, the rate of
attacks will increase. I just hope our politics will have results. Even a
minimal result is good, because that means we don't go back and redo the
work. That means we save our efforts.

Best Regards,

Antonio Gallardo.
