When the cat's away the mice will SPAM.

Can we please have an automatic deletion and/or penalty box for posts that get flagged for breaking guidelines by many users at times when no mod is online? [more inside]

MeFi: SEO spammer early warning system

So it turns out that not only were we being spammed (1, 2, 3, 4) by the Times, a whole lot of other people were too. We should have a Most Wanted page for webmasters to consult or something, since MeFi does such a good job at being the canary in the coal mine. Nice catch, Jess/Matt.

Comment spam

Vaguely relevant remark + 2(link to own website) + sales-pitch = inauspicious first comment.

spam spam spammity spam

This is a spammy self-link in the comments of the green, from a shiny new user. The poster almost asked permission in the gray (the thread just below this one), but I suspect that this isn't quite what #1 had in mind when he said to go ahead and make the post.

Wardriving weblog spammer story

I post link about wardriving comment spammer. Metafilter Snap Detective Collective examines link, and concludes it is a hoax. Owner of site signs up, and insists it is real and he is not lying. Thread is closed. Conclusion: Everyone lives happily ever after.

One comment, one project posted.

One comment, one project posted. Wasn't there supposed to be some sort of wait? How is this distinguishable from ordinary spamming?

Suspicious user behavior

Something dubious about this is nagging at me, and I can't stop till I've gotten it off my chest. I submit to you user #21799. He has posted twice to the blue, both times to sites with interesting content, but of questionable quality. Both domains posted (1,2) are on the same registrar, with the same basic whois info. The sum of his comments have been tepid one-liners, one to two words in length. Additionally, there is an identical post by someone with the same handle in Broadband Reports, and a complaint about similar TV-related spam in an Avengers newsgroup. Is this subtle link spam at work, or am I being paranoid?

Detroit Wonk got a shiny new MeFi login yesterday (member since: September 4, 2005) and has spent the time spamming the joint with self-links. This uninsightful worm has managed to shoehorn his SEO campaign into six out of his seven MeFi posts, thus far.

DoS spammers?

Exist-there some clever way to direct e-mail back to an offensive spammer so that they will get the message; something like a denial of service attack/overload? The spam is really getting to me these days

(and yes, it has to be legal, or I won't do it)
