BEWARE LINKS In Crankshaft Coalition Wiki

Today when logging in, I noticed an eye catching article in the Wiki titled
Quote:
"Cheapo paint job"
Well, looking at thaty page I saw the URL was one of those obscufated or phishing type emails, maybe worse. Anyway, here it is in copied and pasted below. Do not click the links as they appear to have been set-up for the unsuspecting and could harm your computer with malicious code or content. There is no way to know what this person persons intent is/was when they place such a thing on a site like this, where someone may be looking for information and gets jacked. NOTICE the URL in the address, pay attention to it. I don't recfall anything about cheap paint and any 'teen' as is clearly placed in the link. The address is not what you'd think it to be. Porn sites are not part of my agenda, and anybody not familiar with such things is liable to wind up in trouble because some idiot decides he wants to be funny. I say to the poster of the links here to come forward so I can slap you silly and pay you a personal visit - time or distance is no problem.

Cheapo paint job From Crankshaft Coalition Wiki Jump to: navigation, search cool site man XXX://google.us/group/iteens nn teen bbs[/U] :-O XXX://google.us/group/uteens teen websites 976860 [/U]
I DID NOT CLICK THE LINKS SO I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TYPE SITE THEY LINK TO. ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT ANYBODY POSTING PORN LINKS OF THIS NATURE IS DUE FOR A BLANKET PARTY. NO SOAP, BRING YOUR CUE BALLS, U-JOINTS OR OTHER 'FUN' TYPE FILLER FOR YOUR SOCKS AT THE PARTY. WOO HOO!!!!

It's wiki-spam. It happens every day, on virtually every public wiki. That particular article is getting hit pretty hard, probably because it's climbing the Google rankings in popularity, and getting much more traffic.

The poster of the links isn't a person. It's an automated offshore software program, designed to spam wikis: a "spambot".

If you see spam in the wiki, please just take a minute or two and delete it. I usually check the wiki recent changes page several times daily to review updates and delete spam -- but anyone can lend a hand and do it themselves. Just click the "edit" link at the top of the page. I can catch most of it myself, but I could use some help, as I tend to wake up late .
