Biologicalworld.com

The following discussion is closed.

Biologicalworld.com has spammed wikipedia like no tomorrow. It is a site of only a few pages and a LOT of adsense. Not much information is given except for "protocols" which are not referenced, and cannot be trusted from a site of that quality.

check: Links from Wikipedia or see: Other check to check wikipedia links.

mustangranch.com

Cross wiki spam. The adult search engine mustangranch.com is used to get around the blacklisting of youtube.ag ( http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Spam_blacklist&oldid=585068#youtube.ag ). The link being spammed is mustangranch.com/?domain=youtube.ag . I can't find any other links to mustangranch.com on the Wikimedia wikis, and I can't see any use for it either. If possible maybe you could also change the regex of the youtube.ag blacklisting so that it will not be possible to do the same trick with other search engines?

animesongs.com.br

Cross wiki spam. I have found this website spammed across several language Wikipedias, and have attempted to remove the links from the English, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, and Indonesian Wikipedias (ja:Special:Contributions/Ryulong will show my removals at ja). I cannot find a particular single IP that did these additions (201.52.82.108 appeared to be the culprit at en and to some extent at ja, but I have not checked at other projects).

There is no reason that this fansite should be used, as it is a Portuguese language website that is not official and violates the musician's copyrights by publishing romanicized lyrics of the songs.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 07:11, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

I have found the various additions of this website at other languages.

  • pt had only 4 pages, considering that it is the language of the fansite
  • es had 8 pages
  • fr had 8 pages
  • id had 16 pages

This is extreme spam of this website, and I am sure that if I were to check other projects (such as those that have translated versions of en:Ichiro Mizuki), I will find this website spammed there, as well.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 07:28, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

hm, I randomly clicked diffs for de.wiki he was reverted in some articles with summaries like spam-link and overseen(? - doing some reverts now) on others. His contributions look like spam only to promote his website [6] (he posts the same text wherever he can). I have not checked en.wiki but I doubt it is in accordance with w:Wikipedia:External links there, I will ask Thogo (de.wiki admin) for procedure on de.wiki, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 19:43, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Jorunn, Herby, I can't understand why PugliaRooms was banned. It's a useful resource to find touristic services for all the terms (regions and cities) it was associated to (Apulia, Salento, Lecce, Brindisi). Other links even less relevant are still working in the same page pugliarooms' link was deleted. Even more, This site was born in 2007 from a project funded and powered by institution such as UE Regione Puglia, Chamber of Commerce and the Municipality of Lecce (POR Puglia 2000 - 2006 misura 5.3). Look at the site to check it out. Thanks in advance! The preceding unsigned comment was added by 151.33.131.26 (talk • contribs) 16:50, 21 Jan 2008 (UTC)

Herby, I understand this. I just added pugliarooms' link where external links of other similar resources were. Just where external link section had been created.

I'm really afraid for my mistake. I'm not a spammer, at all. And it' s the first time it happens.

Typically, we do not remove domains from the spam blacklist in response to requests from site-owners or others that have spammed them. Instead, we de-blacklist sites when trusted, high-volume editors request the use of blacklisted links because of their encyclopedic value in support of our encyclopedia pages. If such an editor asks to use your links, I'm sure the request will be carefully considered and your links may well be removed.
This blacklist is used by more than just our 700+ Wikimedia Foundation wikis (Wikipedias, Wiktionaries, etc.). All 3000+ Wikia wikis plus a substantial percentage of the 25,000+ unrelated wikis that run on our MediaWiki software have chosen to incorporate this blacklist in their own spam filtering. Each wiki has a local "whitelist" which overrides the global blacklist for that project only. Some of these non-Wikimedia sites may be interested in your links; by all means feel free to request local whitelisting on those.
Unlike Wikipedia, DMOZ is a web directory specifically designed to categorize and list all Internet sites; if you've not already gotten your sites listed there, I encourage you to do so -- it's a more appropriate venue for your links than our wikis. Their web address: http://www.dmoz.org/. --A. B. (talk) 14:38, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Sorry but everybody should be equal before the law, so you should blacklist also the other commercial sites still in the wiki pages you removed this link. I have a great consideration of your job, but i think that everybody should have a second chance. Have you never been wrong? ^_^ Thank you!

Well, I'd say I'm wrong about 30% of the time. Fortunately, Jorunn, Herby, Nick, and Spacebirdy are smarter than me. (... even if they weren't, 30% X 30% X 30% X 30% X 30% << 1% error rate)
There's a clear consensus your links should stay on the blacklist.
Just on the English Wikipedia alone, there were over 3 million links a year ago and I'd estimate a million were inappropriate. Most were added in good faith by regular editors, but probably several hundred thousand were spammed by site-owners. I put in a lot of volunteer hours trying to fix this but I just haven't gotten around to your competitors -- feel free to pitch in and help. --A. B. (talk) 18:25, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, but I just wanted to point out that pugliarooms.com is NOT a spamming site! The links in wiki pages were put just where other people could find useful (and even more, in the right place - external links - and for the right terms: apulia, salento, lecce, brindisi). Sorry but this is NOT spam. I think users should have judged about it, not a spambot (even human)... Anyway, thank for your time, I really appreciate your consideration about my objections and I have a great consideration for the service you give to the community. Bye! :)

By proposing to add your link to this blacklist I did not mean to deem the website as spam. My only opinion is that the link was added excessively, it was added cross wiki, and that the website wasn't obvioulsy useful to the Wikimedia projects. The combination of those three factors made me propose the addition of your link.
The link was readded twice to the article en:Apulia after it had been removed. In en:Salento it was readded once after removal. Even though you didn't seem to get a warning on any talk page of your IPs, you probably noticed that the link was repeatedly removed by other users? The link was also readded after removal in hu:Salento and bs:Apulija.
You are right that there are lots of other links that shouldn't be in Wikipedia either. -Jorunn 22:02, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
I found a warning given to you on nl:Overleg_gebruiker:151.33.134.158] while trying to find information about another spammed link. --Jorunn 22:37, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Jorunn, since i'm a newbie on wikipedia (it was the first time i put something in), i clearly admitted more than on time i mede a great mistake. I just wanted to be useful for all these users looking for resouces about apulia and salento. I'm REALLY afraid for that and it wasn't my will to cause damage to the community. I saw the warnings but i inserted the link again because i really didn't understand why only pugliarooms' link was deleted while the other commercial sites could stay there. I thought that pugliarooms' competitors had deleted it so it seems to me an unfair behaviour. I hope you can understand my reasons. Thanks again! diegolas

Yes, it is a problem that some persons are removing other links to better expose their own links, and it is a problem that some people constantly put their own link at the top of the list of links.That is part of the reason we can't keep links to for instance every tourist guide.
I understand your reasons. But I still don't think the website is useful to Wikipedia. If an established user asks for the link to be removed it will be considered. Thank you. --Jorunn 12:31, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Jorunn, i just would like pugliarooms was unblacklist for a reason of evident good faith. It's a matter of corporate image. Please, i'm asking you just that. In google search you can find this site as "blacklisted". pugliarooms has institutionals partners and this starts to be seen in a wrong way. Please... You can say the website is not useful (i disagree cause the website gives also info about cultural and traditional events, but i respect your opinion) but punishing an entire corporation for an error of a newbie probably is too much.... Thank you guys for your answers.

RateLadder.com, P2PNoBank.com, SFBoater.com

The following discussion is closed.

RateLadder was flagged as spam during a dispute (edit war) the Prosper page. RateLadder is the longest running p2p lending comentary blog. In addition, recently (late 12/08) RateLadder (the person) is now the editor-in-cheif of the Prosper Blog: http://blog.prosper.com . Clearly RateLadder.com is related to p2p lending and specificaly Prosper. An additional block was placed on the victims adsence account which affected P2PNoBank.com (related to incident) and SFBoater.com (unrelated to incident).

P2P No Bank is an opt in p2p lending blog aggregator owned and operated by RateLadder. It was flagged as spam during a dispute (edit war) the Prosper page. Clearly p2pnobank.com is related to p2p lending and generally Prosper as well. An additional block was placed on the victims adsence account which affected RateLadder.com (related to incident) and SFBoater.com (unrelated to incident).

SFBoater is the victim of collateral damage. It was flagged as spam becasue it used the same adsense account as RateLadder.com and P2PNoBank.com. SFBoater is a boating, cmaping, and fishing fan site. It doesn't even have google adsence on the site anymore. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 71.204.144.108 (talk • contribs) 05:18, 14 Jan 2008 (UTC)

s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/

The following discussion is closed.

This site was originally blacklisted in May 2007 because a user not affiliated with the site was spamming Wikipedia with links to it in order to bypass an already existing blacklist on their own wiki. In the proposal for the ban it was remarked that the site "needed some time off". I ask that it be removed from the blacklist. Ask Greg is the website through which Greg Weisman, creator, writer, and producer of several animated television shows, including the upcoming en:The Spectacular Spider-Man (TV series) and en:Gargoyles (TV series) as well as the en:Gargoyles (SLG comic) currently in production, discusses these shows and other areas of his expertise. This site is the most cited reference for all things relating to the en:Gargoyles (TV series) and en:Gargoyles (SLG comic). Since this site was blacklisted several pages relating to the show including the show's main page have been marked as not citing references or sources. The reason for this is that the site's been blacklisted. Were it not blacklisted the references for many of the facts presented in these articles could once again be cited. Nobody affiliated with Ask Greg was responsible for the spamming of the website address to Wikipedia early last year, but rather the site has become victim to an overzealous fan trying to promote his own, separate Gargoyles-related website.

If the ban were to remain in place I would begin to worry that all it takes to remove a website from Wikipedia is to spam links to it a few times across several Wikipedia articles. I can understand a temporary blacklist to discourage further abuse of these links, but I think that time has long past and this site should be removed from the blacklist. Thanks.

Background
  1. Talk:Spam blacklist/Archives/2007/04/Additions: Done#gargoyles.dracandros.com
    • First, gargoyles.dracandros.com was blacklisted
      1. Spam and "rip-off" allegations on a competing Wikia project
    1. Second, spam on en.wikipedia
  2. Talk:Spam blacklist/Archives/2007/04/Additions: Done#www.s8.org/gargoyles
    • Now this second domain was blacklisted; it was being spammed a means of bypassing gargoyles.dracandros.com's blacklist
      GT75gs previously received multiple warnings which he erased.[25]
  3. Talk:Spam blacklist/Archives/2007/05/Removals: Not Done#gargoyles.dracandros.com
    • Long removal discussion
  4. Talk:Spam blacklist/Archives/2007/07#s8.org/gargoyles
    • Another long removal discussion


Whether or not this site should be blacklisted, I don't think it should be blacklisted here; if it is blacklisted, it should be done locally at en.wikipedia. That frees its links to be used on other wikis. The one Wikia can always locally blacklist there as well. --A. B. (talk) 17:21, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

ourworld.cs.com

This website is simply a web host. It doesn't seem to be harmful. Specifically, I want to use ourworld.cs.com/eblibrarian/, as it contains useful information for the en:Pan American Games. The article I'm working on is en:1987 Pan American Games, and ourworld.cs.com/eblibrarian/1987Summary.html seems to be one of the best web sources availiable. en:User:Reywas92

I suggest seeking whitelisting for the specific pages you want on en wp (w:MediaWiki talk:Spam-whitelist) thanks --Herby talk thyme 08:28, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
The original blacklisting request spread a very, very wide net hitting several major hosting services and they should probably be replaced with the offending subdomains.
Let me do some research and I'll give you the subdomains. --A. B. (talk) 13:04, 15 January 2008 (UTC) 13:01, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
There were dozens, perhaps >100 IPs that spammed hundreds of links. Most of them were subdomains of large hosting services. Mostly they're throwaway subdomains that were probably closed by the hosting services within days. I spent a lot of time gathering links and, on closer examination, I think it was a waste of time since this was almost a year and a half ago. I suggest just removing these from the blacklist and moving on:
  • hometown.aol.de
  • ourworld.cs.com
--A. B. (talk) 22:00, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the work A. B. All in all agreed & so Yes check.svg Done. I'm sure some will come back but we can deal with what does when it does --Herby talk thyme 17:40, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

seems that .myftp is blacklisted so i can't really post my url etux.myftp.org as a free shell and webspace provider , the thing i that .myftp is a no-ip free dynamic dns domain and iam totally wondering why its blacklisted anyway , but i hope it will be delisted as soon as possible :) The preceding unsigned comment was added by L3thal (talk • contribs) 13:10, 16 Jan 2008 (UTC)

It is blacklisted as a URL redirector which are always blacklisted as a matter of policy (to prevent the bypassing of existing blocks). Thanks --Herby talk thyme 13:15, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
well how come , i think every domain is assigned to a server ip ,means it redirect yo to a server ip , please explain more, thanks.

look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell_account there is a URL should be blacklisted unixclan.no-ip.com , i think i's not fair to blacklist .myftp.org and not .no-ip.com

The fact that we have not listed something is no reason to unlist one I'm afraid. I'm sure we will get to the ones we missed soon. Symbol declined.svg Declined --Herby talk thyme 08:36, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

hungarybudapestguide.com + touristguide.gyuli.com

The following discussion is closed.

The hungarybudapestguide.com + touristguide.gyuli.com has been blacklisted, and I understand the blacklisting. The reason why the addresses were changed to hungarybudapestguide.com was that a new domain name was bought, and therefore I changed the old ones to the new address(there were no more links to touristguide.gyuli.com as the address was banned - if I remember correctly). I agree that I spammed Wikipedia with to many links, in the en:Hungary and en:Budapest category (in different languages), but it can also be seen that I have used it as a reference as well, and not for the purpose of spamming at all (see: en:Budapest#shopping, en:Saint Stephen's Basilica, no:Budapest and some others). I would ask for the blacklisting of hungarybudapestguide.com to be removed (the touristguide.gyuli.com can remain, anyway not using it), and I will not add the page any more as an external link, but it can be used as a reference when needed (that will only be in English and Norwegian, as they are the languages which I know how to use).

Background: Talk:Spam_blacklist#hungarybudapestguide.com_.2B_touristguide.gyuli.com

If this is not possible, I accept that and understand it, but if it could be possible to remove the blacklisting that would be very nice and I would be very grateful. If you should find that I abuse it, blacklist it again at once (but you will not experience that, so do not worry). The preceding unsigned comment was added by Siggiboy81 (talk • contribs) 13:02, 18 Jan 2008 (UTC)

I removed the links from ca. 90 articles yesterday. Others had already removed the links from other articles. In many articles there were two of the links. In all there has probably been more than 200 of your links cross wiki. There were still touristguide.gyuli.com links in some wikis, and there still might be some in the smaller Wikipedias even though I have tried to find and remove all.
Local whitelisting can be sought on the wikis where the link is wanted. A local whitelisting will override this blacklist. For the English Wikipedia it can be done at en:MediaWiki_talk:Spam-whitelist. no.wikipedia doesn't seem to have a whitelist yet, but they can create one if needed.
Please read en:Wikipedia:Conflict of interest before you consider adding more of your links. Thanks. --Jorunn 23:44, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
I have written to the English whitelist, and I also sent an email to info-no@wikimedia.org about creating a Whitelist for the Norwegian Wikipedia. I thank you for the help and hope that my application for being whitelistened will be approved. Thanks for all the help! --Siggiboy81 16:42, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

szlemberk.xf.cz/

Completely legitimate site that I need to use as a reference and external link, I don't see why it is blacklisted.--24.64.124.27 16:30, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Found that [26], [27] in the archives, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 16:59, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
That doesn't really explain anything, the site has very little advertising and contains useful information.--24.64.124.27 17:29, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
It explains why it was added, the domain was often used for spamming links, it was a problem for cs.wiki but since there is now w:cs:MediaWiki:Spam-whitelist a local whitelist, it is whitelisted there and they can use the links. If any other wiki wants to link they should add it to their local whitelist. Other opinions? Thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 21:55, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

I guess the toss up is whether to remove here & locally blacklist or to look at local whitelisting where needed. Blacklisting here is rather a severe measure if not fully warranted. Any other views? --Herby talk thyme 16:47, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

studentville.it

The following discussion is closed.

This is the most visited 100% free web site for italian students. It offers good free contenents in latin, literature, philosopy, math, etc. Some links according to me could be useful for wiki users.

Many links were added last year by a competitors with the aim to ban studentville.it from wikipedia.

Typically, we do not remove domains from the spam blacklist in response to site-owners' requests. Instead, we de-blacklist sites when trusted, high-volume editors request the use of blacklisted links because of their encyclopedic value in support of our encyclopedia pages. If such an editor asks to use your links, I'm sure the request will be carefully considered and your links may well be removed.
This blacklist is used by more than just our 700+ Wikimedia Foundation wikis (Wikipedias, Wiktionaries, etc.). All 3000+ Wikia wikis plus a substantial percentage of the 25,000+ unrelated wikis that run on our MediaWiki software have chosen to incorporate this blacklist in their own spam filtering. Each wiki has a local "whitelist" which overrides the global blacklist for that project only. Some of these non-Wikimedia sites may be interested in your links; by all means feel free to request local whitelisting on those.
Italian Wikipedia whitelist requests can be made at it:MediaWiki talk:Spam-whitelist.
Unlike Wikipedia, DMOZ is a web directory specifically designed to categorize and list all Internet sites; if you've not already gotten your sites listed there, I encourage you to do so -- it's a more appropriate venue for your links than our wikis. Their web address: http://www.dmoz.org/.

suite101.com

The following discussion is closed.

The reasons provided to blacklist this site (blog provider not matching enwiki's reliability standards, enwiki link spam by one of its writers - Talk:Spam blacklist discussion, WikiProject Spam discussion) might have been valid when there was only one central blacklist, but now that enwiki has its own blacklist there is no reason to keep it up here, as other projects have different standards for reliability and external links. (Specifically, some of the stuff under psychic-abilities.suite101.com would be useful on huwiki -- and yes i know i could just whitelist it, but moving it to teh en: blacklist seems to be the more correct solution, as the blacklisting is based on enwiki-specific policies, and might hinder any number of other projects.) So please remove and notify the en: admins to readd it there if needed. --Tgr 16:23, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

My viewpoint:
  1. There were many suite101.com links on other projects at the time it was blacklisted. See, for instance, de:Spezial:Beiträge/Orca66.
  2. There was not just one suite101.com writer spamming these links but rather dozens.

I think some other projects may also not want this domain. Perhaps it would be best to just whitelist it at hu.wikipedia.
I was very involved with the incident when it broke out, so it would help to have someone more neutral handle this request from here.
