As most of you will have noticed, the last two days brought us enormous amounts of spam from
computersight.com – more specifically the following link:
computersight.com / communication-networks / security / the-menace-of-win-32-virus
I don't have a count of the posts / users already deleted, but i suspect it's in the upper twenties?
We do have a global blacklist and anything extra-egregious goes on it.
Even more so, just recently (emphasis mine):
[…] I am open to blacklisting URLs if there is indeed a recurring pattern of abuse, but blacklisting isn't worth it unless there is a demonstrated pattern of this specific URL appearing at least on two different incidents.
Wouldn't it be about time adding this website (and the IPs they are using, if trackable) to our blacklist? I sure appreciate the free flag weight, but we probably have other things to do than just downvote, spam-flag and delete questions, answers and users all day.
Update: They are back, aaaah!

computersight.comwould no longer turn up that post. Hopefully preventing it from being removed by an overzealous reader of this post :P
