Spam search[edit]


Hi!, I'd like to report you a possible bug on your tool. When I try to search on wp-es this message apppears:

« Content-type: text/html

got an error: not a valid file: »

Best regards Dferg (T-ES) 12:14, 3 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

thx! should be fixed now.
reason was: es-wiki doesn't use <pre>, but uses <pre class="..."> in its lists. -- seth 16:21, 3 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you very much Dferg (T-ES) 21:13, 3 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry, the tool still doesn't work. Dferg (T-ES) 11:50, 8 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Any chance you can change the default to check only Meta? Normally that's all the data we need - one can of course request further data from the tool as required. Thanks.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 02:07, 12 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

At the moment the default is the only way to get some info about XBotLink. SO I better attach XBotLink to one of the languages/projects. Should I add it to "meta" or to "w:en"? -- seth 09:55, 12 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's part of enwiki, I'd say.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 05:46, 29 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
done. -- seth 14:29, 29 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Another: Can you have the tool cache any pages it fetches live (when a user requests a "purge")? Then, when replicated data is older than the cached version, you can use the cached data (and still offer to fetch newer data). When replicated data is newer than the cache, throw it away, since it's useless. This avoids fetching live data on Meta's spam blacklist multiple times unnecessarily.

Just thinking now... the toolserver replicated database doesn't contain page text, I thought... so where are you getting the contents of the page?  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 20:43, 9 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm caching all data already. I use the mirror function of LWP::UserAgent, see [2] (search for "mirror").

Could you have it trim leading/trailing whitespace from input?  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 15:56, 20 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

done. -- seth 02:10, 21 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


When checking your tool against ruwiki ([3]), I get something like "спам в ст. Аска Лэнгли Сорью, сайт содержит материалы, нарушающие АП. altes" - could you double-check you're reading the page text with the right encoding?  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 23:59, 31 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Should be fixed now:
print $cgi->header();
print $cgi->header(-charset=>'utf-8');
-- seth 21:51, 1 April 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

proper escaping?[edit]

At [4], it seems there may be missing escaping or something - the regex fragment isn't grabbed from the blacklist properly (or isn't shown properly at any rate).  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 19:56, 2 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

should be fixed now. -- seth 20:38, 4 June 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

XLinkBot log not defined[edit]

While your spamlists search does include listings on, it does not show the log entries. I get this;

"no log defined for this project. ask there if you want this script to use the log. "

The log is located here. I don't know what we did before the spamlists search tool. I've placed a Note on XLinkBot here. thanks seth.--Hu12 15:42, 28 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

thx for that hint. i'll cope with that in perhaps 5 days, because i'll be away from my code for that time. meanwhile perhaps you could "clean up" the log so that it looks similar to the other logs. otherwise i'll do that, too. -- seth 18:12, 28 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, it's already been discussed at It's not considered as spam at de-wiki. Well, actually I considered it to be spam, but some reputable users requested un-blacklisting. -- seth 12:57, 27 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Dear Lustiger Seth,

It was brought to our attention that all the references to our websites have vanished from Wikipedia. A short check has shown that our domain,, was blacklisted due to conflict of interest issues. We wish to emphasize that we never had any intension of doing something which is against Wikipedia’s guidelines. We are a worldwide, leading company in our field, which has been operating for over a decade. We will appreciate any feedback that you could give us, as well as steps we need to take in order to improve our status and be removed from the blacklist. We would like to make sure this situation does not repeat itself, in the interest of all parties involved.

Looking forward for your reply.

Thank you and best regards, Oris 12:21, 25 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Links to that domain were added by different users, see m:user:COIBot/XWiki/ Afaics those links are no advantage to wikipedia articles in sense of en:WP:EL (or de:WP:EL a.s.o.). Is there any article where a link to that domain would be useful? -- seth 15:54, 27 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi Seth,
Thank you for your prompt reply! We carefully read the instructions written in en:WP:EL and went over the list of references to m:user:COIBot/XWiki/ In this list we found several references which are very relevant to the articles and can definitely enrich their content. For instance, it is only natural and straightforward to add external links to the company’s main websites which are mentioned within the article on 888 Holdings.
Furthermore, in some cases the external links to were inserted as we are the official sponsors of personas and teams such as Shane Warne (see, Michael Keiner (see, Jeff Fenech (see & Sevilla FC (see In each of these cases, relevant content which contributes to the article’s theme, was added. Though I agree with you, It might have been even more appropriate to reference these pages under “References” or “Notes”.
We will greatly appreciate any feedback you may have on the cases noted above or on any other steps we should take in order to follow Wikipedia’s guidelines.
Best Regards, Oris 09:41, 31 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
At 888 Holdings there is a link to the company already.
I'm not sure about the sponsor links. I guess, it is better, if you choose one of those articles and ask on its talk page, whether a link to is wanted or unwanted. -- seth 10:20, 31 March 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Dear Seth,
We contacted you several months ago regarding the blacklisting of in Wikipedia. As a result we took some measures regarding the guidelines and instructions you provided us with. We now have only one focal point which is allowed to suggest content to Wikipedia according to its guidelines and in an effort to really enrich it with high quality, relevant content. We will be grateful if you could reconsider our removal from Wikipedia blacklist.
According to your recommendation, our focal point tried to add some relevant content within one of the talk pages but it seems like the editor relied more on the fact being blacklisted than on relevance of the content itself. See here.
We are currently in a process of uploading valuable, interesting content to our websites. We feel that Wikipedia readers might find this content attractive and relevant. You are more than welcome to review it yourself at: or
Best regards,Oris 14:15, 25 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's not true, that the blacklisting itself was the main reason, see [5].
You can tell me a specific 888 web page and a specific wikipedia article, and I'll will ask on the article's talk page, whether the authors would like to add the link there. (Of course you can ask by yourself, if your German is good enough or if you want to ask in English there.) In the English wikipedia there was one answerer only, user:2005, and seems to have a similar opinion as I have, i.e., one link to the main page should be enough. -- seth 20:12, 26 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi Seth,
Thanks for your patience and willingness to help! sponsors Dr. Michael Keiner (a professional German poker player) and keeps track on all of his main achievements in the following URL: I have noticed that Dr. Michael Keiner's Wikipedia page doesn't have any updates on his more recent achievements in the 2009 WSOP.
If you too believe that this information is relevant and contributes to the Wiki's article, I would be more than happy to get your help in addressing the relevant Wiki editor.
Thanks!! Oris 13:17, 22 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I asked at de:talk:Michael_Keiner for some opinions concerning the link. Let's wait a few days for some answers. -- seth 11:49, 23 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks! Oris 05:48, 24 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi Seth,
I have read the responses at de:talk:Michael_Keiner and they seem very peculiar to me since I believe that Wikipedia has a need for a good and reliable information with relevant and trusted references on and off the web. Maybe I didn't understand the editors' remarks correctly and so I would appreciate it a lot if you could help me understand this issue better.
I also wanted to thank you a lot for all your efforts - I really appreciate your help and it is not taken for granted!! Oris 08:04, 28 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'll try to translate and summarize the comments:
I asked at de:talk:Michael_Keiner: The article doesn't say anything about Keiner's achievements at 2009 WSOP. His sponsor's website gives some information. That domain is on our blacklist right now, so I'm interested in opinions on that link, for making a dicision about whitelisting it.
User GiordanoBruno doesn't see any reason for linking the webpage. He says, it would be better to copy the information to the wikipedia article, if the information was important enough. There wouldn't be anything special about that page.
User He3nry agrees with GiordanoBruno. sees the Webpage as a reliable source and adds that every evidence is better than an unreferenced information. claims that the wikipedia article contained a lot of numbers which should be proved by references. So in this user's opinion the link is good as a reference, but not as a regular external link (in that point agrees with GiordanoBruno).
User Oberfoerster doesn't see the benefit of this external link as a reference, because he could not find the numbers from the wikipedia article in the 888-page.
My English is not very good, but I guess, I could outline the main points.
All in all I don't see that the link really is wanted there. -- seth 21:59, 28 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply][edit]

Hi, in case you haven't noticed, As I am writing there, I don't quite understand why this was added to global blacklist, but I guess I'm missing something ;) Best regards, Finn Rindahl 19:04, 8 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

google spam[edit]

Hi Lustiger seth, could I ask you to have a look at Talk:Spam_blacklist#Google_redirect_spam - a lot of Google needs to be blocked as it can be used as a redirect site. Thanks. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 13:38, 24 October 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Could I ask you to have another look at the request, I am not happy with the current rule, which may have false positives (though I agree, if the link redirected to is blacklisted, it should already not work - there may be a bug there). Thanks! --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 15:57, 1 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Regexp check[edit]

Hi seth. I added this to the SBL based on Talk:Spam_blacklist#Cross-wiki_spammer. Is the pro-* regexp correct? Thanks in advance. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:07, 16 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi! I'm using unsafe computers/connections right now, so I'm not logged in.
pro-* matches any string (or to be more precise: domain) that contains "pro", "pro-", "pro--", "pro---" snd so on.
\bpro-.*?\.ru\b matches any domain that contains "pro-" (where "pro-" must not be prefixed by any alphanumerical character) and that contains somewhere behind that an occurence of ".ru" (where ".ru" must not be followed by ny alphanumerical character), e.g., "", "", "". -- 09:34, 17 October 2012 (UTC) (not logged in -- seth (talk) 21:25, 2 November 2012 (UTC))Reply[reply]

Falsche und unberechtigte Einträge in Spamlist "" "" verhindern Korrektur eines bestehenden und gesichteten Links!!

Letztes Jahr hat der Wikipedia Spamlinkjäger Hu12 ohne jede Rücksicht auf irgendwelche Inhalte sämtliche zum überwiegenden Teil seit Jahren gesichteten Links zu einer Reihe an vollkommen unkommerziellen Klangbeispielen zu ansonsten selten oder überhaupt nicht anderweitig verfügbaren Aufnahmen vor allem unbekannter Komponisten auf die Blacklist gesetzt. Lediglich die Tatsache, dass über 1000 Aufnahmen von 100 verschiedenen Komponistenb aus vier Jahrhunderten tatsächlich unabhängig von der Sprachversion in vielen verschiedenen Artikeln bereichernde Links zu entsprechenden Klangbeispielen bieten können. Nach eingehender Diskussion im Musikbereich des deutschen Wikipedia hat die Administratorin density die Links im Artikel über Jean Louis Nicodé wieder hergestellt. Diesen kann ich aber wegen der irrigen Spamlisteinträge "" und "" nicht korrigieren! Auch der Nicodé-chor empfiehlt übrigens diese Aufnahmen auf seiner offiziellen Homepage Ähnliche Versuche die Links wegen ihrer inhaltlichen Berechtigung wiederherzustellen hatte es z.B. im Artikel Tzigane des Niederländischen wikipedia wurden ohne jede inhaltliche Diskussion mit dem Verweis auf diese Blacklisteinträge kassiert. Ob diese Einträge in der Blacklist inhaltlich auch nur im geringsten gerechtfertigt wären konnte nirgendwo aufgezeigt werden. Tatsächlich rechtfertigt die Seite klassik-resampled in keiner Weise irgend einen einzigen Aspekt der den Eintrag in einer Spamblacklist rechtfertigt. Vielmehr bietet sie mit zahlreichen frei verfügbaren und vollständig unkommerziellen Erstaufnahmen, Aufnahmen selten gespielter Komponisten und Gesamtaufnahmen von Standardrepertoir in vielen Artikeln eine inhaltliche Bereicherung durch vollständige Musikbeispiele, die nach der Löschung der Links in der Regel durch nichts ersetzt werden konnten. Ich empfehle dringend diese Einträge endlich und umgehend von der Blacklist zu nehmen. --Fahl5 (talk) 16:14, 25 September 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The way you did it (P[eèéêë][iìíïî]d[aàáâä]r) was actually ok. There is no really better possibility, cause there are no character classes like "characters that look like e". And even if there were such classes, the regexp could be easily circumvented by using context-sensitive whitespace-similar characters like "P_e_i_d_a_r", "PxExIxDxAxR" a.s.o. (afaik the last example would even trick the abuse filters normalize function)
So I guess that you have to modify the regexps "on demand", i.e., every time when the vandal modifies his behaviour. -- seth 09:11, 12 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Guten morgen, Lustiger. I was perusing your script, on a site to find the entry when it was added. It then nicely gives both the rule on the spam-blacklist, and it's removal. I decided to remove the rule (but with a thought that things could be added back), so I clicked the link again: .. it now obviously does not show the rule on the blacklist (I removed it), but I think it should now find two log entries.

Hallo Seth! Ich kenne mich nicht aus mit diesen Filtern. Ich verstehe dich so, dass diese Seite sich dann um das Entsperren kümmern soll? Dann nicht verschieben, weil das nur ein Beispiel war. Es erschreckt mich jedes Mal, wenn so ein Filter erscheint, als hätte ich etwas Böses getan. Mir ging es eher darum, was das für Konsequenzen für mich hat, wenn ich solche Filter auslöse (obwohl keine böse Absichten dahinter stecken). --Wagner67 (talk) 19:21, 27 November 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
gudn tach!
vorab: es gibt die spam-blacklist und es gibt das edit filter, die grundsaetzlich unterschiedlich funktionieren. die spam-blacklist soll das hinzufuegen von bestimmten links verhindern. im edit filter koennen komplexe regeln angelegt werden, die z.b. bestimmten usern bestimmte edits in bestimmten artikeln verbieten.
du beziehst dich hier auf die spam-blacklist. wenn du einen url hinzufuegen moechtest, der durch diese liste verhindert wird, erscheint die meldung w:de:MediaWiki:Spamprotectiontext. gibt's daran eine bestimmte formulierung, bei der du verbesserungspotenzial siehst? vorschlaege sind willkommen! :-)
konsequenzen: eigentlich keine. zwar wird jeder blockierte versuch mitgeloggt, siehe [9], aber das ist nix schlimmes. das log wird vor allem fuer statistische auswertungen benutzt bzw. um zu schauen, ob man z.b. ncah 10 jahren einen eintrag von der spam blacklist wieder loeschen kann.
das meiste, was bei dir blockiert wurde und deshalb im log steht, waren google-links. die stehen aus zwei gruenden auf der blacklist, 1. weil wir google nicht so viele daten unserer user schenken wollen; 2. weil man google als sperrumgehung verwenden kann. bei diesen links sollte eigentlich immer der original-url extrahiert und stattdessen verwendet. bei dem genannten protectiontext ganz unten ist ein tool angegeben, mit dem die original-urls aus den google-urls herausgekratzt werden koennen.
hilft dir das weiter? -- seth (talk) 22:18, 27 November 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ja, zum Teil hatte ich mir das auch so gedacht. Neu ist für mich dass man google "nicht so viele daten unserer user schenken" will. Das mit dem protectiontext schau ich mir noch genauer an. Danke dir.--Wagner67 (talk) 06:28, 28 November 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

searchsbl: searching for regexes[edit]

Hi. Could you please indicate if there is a means to search for when it is caught by the regex \bopindia\.(?:com|in)\b.

\bopindia\.(?:com|in) matches and (and or, but neither nor \b means word boundary.
so is not blocked by that regexp. in fact is is not blocked at all:
if you wanted to block, you could add the sbl entry \bbopindia\.com.

Non-hitting entries[edit]

In this edit from several years ago, you cleared a number of entries at "non-hitting." What exactly does that mean? That the url doesn't resolved, or that no one has attempted to add a link from one of those sites in a certain frame of time? Ohnoitsjamie (talk) 14:05, 9 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

the corresponding post to my edit was [10] in the thread Talk:Spam_blacklist/Archives/2015-01#Expert_maintenance.
so non-hitting entries were "entries that never triggered the sbl during 2013-sep and 2015-feb anywhere" (i.e. the second of your options). -- seth (talk) 21:00, 9 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Kleiner Fehler in Spam-Blacklist?[edit]

Hallo Seth,

im Artikel AliExpress der deutschen Wikipedia ist die URL untypisch für einen Website-Artikel ausgeklammert worden. Das hatte mich gewundert, und wollte das wieder in den Artikel einfügen, bekam dann aber eine Fehlermeldung, weil die URL wohl auf der Spam-Blacklist liegen würde. Das habe ich durch das Tool überprüft, dort wurde dann angezeigt, dass "\baliexpress\.com\b" blockiert wird. Sollte also nur "" blockiert werden und ist "" da fehlerhaft mit blockiert worden, oder ist die Website von AliExpress zurecht wegen Spam auf der Blacklist gelandet? Ich habe dafür gerade keine Begründung gefunden mit dem Tool, ich kann natürlich auch was übersehen haben. Irritierend finde ich auch, dass im Spam-Tool steht, dass die URL global für alle Wikis blockiert ist, er in der englischen Wikipedia allerdings ganz normal in der Infobox steht. Wenn du da mehr weißt, wäre ich über eine Antwort sehr dankbar, auch wenn es wirklich nur eine eher unwichtige Kleinigkeit ist. --Max221B (talk) 20:38, 4 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

gudn tach Max221B!
\b steht fuer wortgrenze. es ist also die komplette domain "" gesperrt. grund war wohl spam, der auf User:COIBot/XWiki/ teilweise dokumentiert ist.
es gibt leider keine nachhaltige loesung, um domains von bestimmten seiten fernzuhalten (technisch ist es mittels edit filter zwar moeglich, aber regeln im edit filter sind nicht so schoen wartbar.)
ich werde es deshalb so machen, dass ich die domain kurz von der globalen blacklist nehme, dann den link einbaue, und dann den link wieder sperre.
sicherheitshalber werde ich das auf Talk:Spam blacklist ansprechen. vielleicht hat jemand einen besseren vorschlag. -- seth (talk) 08:21, 5 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi, dein Vorschlag klingt doch ganz gut, der Link hat ja außerhalb des Artikels auch nirgends etwas verloren, muss also nur da drinstehen. Und danke für die Erklärung mit dem "b". --Max221B (talk) 11:05, 6 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

searchbsl chokes on nowiki and syntaxhighlight tagged pages[edit]

Hi. When blacklist and whitelist pages use alternate means to present their pages as mono typefaces, eg, use of <nowiki> or <syntaxhighlight> the tool chokes on the pages. It seems that the tool only likes pages where <pre> is used.

s:mediawiki:spam-blacklist and s:mediawiki:spam-whitelist both use <syntaxhighlight> and fail. To test

If something is possible, that would be great. I try to avoid "pre".  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:50, 23 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

hi user:billinghurst!
actually both lines you changed say "leave this line exactly as it is". as this is defined in the original source code, both of these lines should actually be a constant across all ~900 wikis. the lines before the beginning pre tag may be formatted in an almost arbritrary way. thus the most reliable way to extract the actual sbl entries is to use the pre tags.
and i don't know whether searchsbl is the only tool that relies on that.
if you want to change that lines, then imho you should change them in all wikis uniformly. then i could adapt the script. but adapting the script for each single wiki would be to expensive. so i'm afraid i'd rather skip this feature request. or is there a crucial benefit of your local change? -- seth (talk) 09:39, 24 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(@Billinghurst:) I have to check COIBot's code, but I think that I also select the part between the "pre"s and then parse the rest. This is a wiki man, everything should be uniform and the same: spaces after and before the '==' in section headers, everything properly templated, https for every external link, and tags uniformly applied :-) --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 12:31, 24 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

URL-Converter mit links funktioniert nicht[edit]

Ich wurde gerade auf meiner (temporären) disk darauf hingewiesen, daß Archivlinks möglichst nicht in Kurzformat angegeben werden sollen. Ist ja auch verständlich erklärt, warum das besser ist. Das würde ich auch gerne machen. Mein Problem ist: Ich finde die zugehörige lange URL nicht, bzw. weiß nicht, wie ich danach suchen könnte. Der Bot (CamelBot), der mich informiert hat verweist dafür auf Dein Tool URL-converter .

Leider kommt der mit der Archiv-URL offenbar nicht zurecht:


sorry, i don't know how to convert this url.

Der Archivlink wurde mir von »Robustlinks Mementoweb« so ausgegeben, nachdem der Beleglink „robustifiziert” wurde, und er funktioniert auch.

Congratulations, Lustiger seth! You now have the rights of an administrator on Meta-Wiki. Please take a moment to read the Meta:Adminstrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat, and Meta:Requests for deletion, but also Talk:Spam blacklist and Talk:Interwiki map), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings, or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care. Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-adminconnect. You may find Meta:Admin handbook to be useful. Please also check or add your entry to the Template:List of administrators. You're also allowed to subscribe to the metawiki-admins private mailing list (subscription instructions on that page). Again, congratulations and welcome to the team.
