A few older ones[edit]

Hi MF-W, I'm very happy to see you're keeping track of this annoying type of spam!

These pages - if not deleted by us or our local admin friends - will show up in Category:Pages with broken file links and/or at the less reliable and rather useless Special:WantedFiles. I'll add links to that category on User:Mathonius/Checklist small wikis when I have more time. Meanwhile, I know three older spammers that would fit here (see User:Mathonius/Reports/Spambots for an extensive overview of recent spambots):

Furthermore, they use the same software as the 'epsom salt' spammers. See these block requests and this CU investigation for more information.
