Can we stop SPAM adverts on Wikinut?

Recently spammers are increasingly posting adverts on many Wikinut pages.

I've been seeing much SPAM inserted as comments on almost every new page that appears here on Wikinut.

Can't we stop SPAM adverts on Wikinut?

Previously I wrote a page titled Unethical advertising is SPAM wherein I wrote my observations about the spam 'bingstore.us' being rampant on Wikinut.

On 26th Jul 2011 the Google search showed 802 results for the phrase 'Wikinut bingstore' and as on today there are about 958 results for the same word search.

Spammers spamming Wikinut

Spammers such as Hduh, ghjznm, cvgzgtdsf, cgzd, and Hurhf are posting spam adverts of 'globalsell.org', 'proxy4biz.com' and 'upsfashion.com' on most of the Wikinut pages.

Results from Wikinut Search box

Look at the image above for the Google search results with the phrase 'Wikinut globalsell'.

If you do search from the Wikinut's own search box for any of the spam words like globalsell or proxy4biz or the spammer names like ghjznm, cvgzgtdsf, or cgzd you won't get any results.

Wikinut's search engine

I think Wikinut's search engine needs an improvement in order to get the reality of the spam pages over here.

And, let us hope Wikinut is going to damn all the spammers shortly.

Also let us do our best to promptly report the spam comments to the Wikinut anti-spam administrators by writing to them via 'Contact Us' link.

It will be a dream come true when I can erase a spammer with the click of the mouse. Thank you Rathnashikamani.

Wikinut has been testing a SPAM comment removal system for some time now. I can remove spam comments but sometimes they show up again when I return to the page.
The SPAM comments do not contain clickable links - so at least they do not bring your page down in that regard but they are annoying for sure.

Great Article. Wouldn't itbe nice if we just had a little button saying " delete comment" for any unwanted spam on our article. Triond has one I believe.

I agree..the one on Triond gives you different things to flag, unsatisfactory content, spam, wrong category...all we need really is a button when we write an article that keeps spam off...
ha as if it were that easy/as if I know how to do it well, I have seen it at any rate!

Superb article--well deserving of the star. i gave up efforts as nothing seems to change. Let's hope the anti-spam option surfaces sooner rather than later. This is well researched and RELEVANT!
