User:Mathonius/Reports/Vertical bar spam

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is an effort to collect information about a certain type of spam, or rather spam attempt. The pattern is usually as follows: an IP address creates a talk page or someone's user page, only adds a vertical bar or |, and uses an edit summary with what seems to be search terms or maybe titles of blog articles, like "comparing and contrasting two wilfred owen poems-12" and "max air jordan shoes".
