Version 1.0

  1. M1ELNB:  Here says his site now has 857 pending posts and
    1. M1EMGG: about pages 33/43 of them are all modified (so start?) since “2012/03/22” (about 1.5 days ago), so the site is being flooded with pending-posts,.
    2. M1EO5U: Regarding the posts from the totally unknown, most, maybe all, seem to be to push an off-site URL at the end of the article: thus spam.
    3. M1EMGY: Which users are involved and how much? Sorting by author to get the counts for each, then resorting by decreasing quantity: And unless mentioned, these users are totally unknown.
      1. M1EN9J:  529=11+25*20+18 from allantun2 (13)
      2. M1ENGZ:  279=2+13*20+17 from megnand83 (14)

      12. M1EMQT:  002 from TurmelleNiverson750 (04)
        1. M1EU13:
          1. M1EU1T: By Google Search for (one of its sentences plus the next 2 words of the next, plus the agency name at the end, both in quotes) I find it listed by Google “About 809 results (0.35 seconds)” -definitely NOT original content!’
            1.  M1EV40: Same search as before except cutting the 2nd setence’s “. Free listings” produces same # of results.
      13. M1EMUD:  002 from MeullionMontane283 (06)
      14. M1EN75 002 from SwainTesha847 (11)

      16. M1EMIP:  001 from DestinyArchitect (01) (me)
  2. M1EO03: This is clearly a result of change
  3. M1EO1O: So
    1. M1EO6A: Undo change as much as is reasonable
      1. M1EOHVStop automatically giving out the privilege
        1. M1EO7K: in -> “New User Default Role” change from “Contributor” to “Subscriber”
      2. M1EOV3: where it was automatically given out then abused
        1. M1EOIM: Revoke it
          1. M1EOBH: If a real, reasonable user posts 1 or a few articles but doesn’t see it appear, s/he stops posting until it does.
            1. M1EOEX: Say no more than 3 posts without it appearing, else it’s likely a machine and/or a crazy person.
          2. M1EOG6: So every unknown user above who posted more than 3 articles (9 users per abuser cut-off), demote from contributor to subscriber
            1. M1EORQ: done via
            2. M1EPS2: In the “Biographical Info” of each I stored a note as say “Did {effective,super}-abuse .”
        2. M1EQO8: Expose the abusers proportionate to abuse
          1. M1EQRG: Super-abusers have their email listed above
          2. M1EQS1: Effective abusers have their user@domain listed “user in the domain domain”.
    2. M1EQTI:  As time permits, plan to read the pending articles. Hopefully there will be some which are legit.
    3. M1ER0S We will probably have to add a rule that content on this site be original and mostly human-created.
  4. Additional document history, in order
    1. M1ELJMGave this post fresh ID M1ELH5
