Can we lock this page or something? It seems to be a target for many of these spammers -- (talk) 08:56, 17 December 2021 (UTC)

I have mentioned this somewhere or other in one of the Community Portal areas in the recentish past, as I recall. Obv. as I'm only a (real*) IP I can't do a thing, but I'd vote for this if it counts. As an actual registered user (* - kudos on the name, I've been seeing your additions and changes recently) you might have more clout with the admin-level users.
But there are far too many unused accounts being created and surprisingly little actual spamdalism, I note. Whether they're being spotted and quietly neutered most of the time or just being created but 'forgotten about', I don't know.
What worries me is if SEO hacks, like this frequently appears to be, still work whilst relegated to historic edits. Hopefully Google, etc, at least downgrade wiki-page info that was reverted away, possibly even penalise it. But that would be down to The Algorithm, and what their spiders do to keep The Algorithm fed.
...anyhoo. Here's hoping someone else notices your edits, like I did. I don't really know who should be directly informed these days, as old admins seem to have idled out. 12:19, 17 December 2021 (UTC)
