Links to online book publisher canvassed by multiple accounts. Some links have been added in good faith by other editors as referenced, so use caution if blacklisting is later considered. OhNoitsJamie Talk 16:05, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

Several throwaway accounts spamming for a consulting blog full of marketing nonsense. Warnings given - any further addition should be blacklisted. GermanJoe (talk) 20:17, 27 May 2018 (UTC)

Ugh - already ran into this sock at Consulthon (talk · contribs), Bailam (talk · contribs), and MirelB87 (talk · contribs). Since it's across multiple articles and multiple socks, I've gone ahead and blacklisted. Kuru (talk) 01:46, 28 May 2018 (UTC)

Light spamming on a couple of articles to a garbage blog. Unlikely to stop as they never return to a previous IP address and will probably spread further.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Ravensfire (talkcontribs)

@Ravensfire: You have a strange definition of light ;-)

@Bri: plus Added to MediaWiki:Spam-blacklist. Can you please go through the COIBot reports in your original summary templates, there is a lot of rubbish more here, and a good handful of accounts. Please report them in a subsection of this, section. --Dirk Beetstra T C 14:50, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

More users, from COIBot

Dirk hope that's okay, I'm not really familiar with the COIBot reports ☆ Bri (talk) 17:59, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

@Bri: I noticed that in the COIBot reports of these users there are more domains regarding credit, and other curious domains (but also good domains ..). I guess there is more spam (sorry, only have mobile to edit, collecting is difficult on that). —Dirk Beetstra T C 19:11, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
Ah, I get it now. Shall update this again ASAP. ☆ Bri (talk) 19:35, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
