ZorMonkey, do you exist, or is this just a page created by a spammer?

I exist, but I didnt create the page! I've only chatted a bit on Talk:Main_Page. I was the one who deleted the spam from this page, but I forgot to log in. --ZorMonkey 11:04, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
Wow, I didnt notice how often the spammer has been hitting User:ZorMonkey. For some reason my watch on that page doesnt work, but it works on User_talk:ZorMonkey. --ZorMonkey 11:15, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
I'm reverting this to blank. ZorMonkey, would you like to put content in, or are you happy for it to stay blank? --Joannac 03:48, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
Blank is fine! I just reverted the changes again (forgot to log in first). Is there any good way to keep the spammers away? --ZorMonkey 10:54, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
Well we could set it up so you have to register before spamming, that would stop them a little at least. -- Moose Hole 17:17, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
I am really confused as to why this page is such a spam-magnet. Does anyone know who we should talk to about getting this page locked? --Joannac 22:02, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
I mailed to the responsible providers/abusedesks about the spamming ips. Which I think are only 193.53.87.133, 193.53.87.89 and 89.149.197.252. As long as they take proper action and the spammers don't multiply I think that's the most elegant solution.

Answer from RIPE:

"The problem is the entire range: inetnum: 193.53.0.0 - 193.53.255.255

It is used to spam unprotected blog comments and similar things on the internet with malicious links.

As you can see from our Database it isn't registered to anyone at the moment but is beoing used fraudulently.

We are currently investigating how to resolve this problem."

So it might be an idea to block this range for the time being--Arvid 10:56, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

ZorMonkey, whatever did you do to attract such wrathful spammers. Did you link this page somewhere? Any guesses, so the rest of us can avoid that fate! -Robyn 18:33, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Nope, no linking or anything. The only place I know of that has a link is Google. I didnt even create the page. I don't know... Does this make me internet famous? :) --ZorMonkey 18:40, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
I wonder what would happen if we deleted the page for a week, and then recreated it.
The spam script would recreate it? See Talk:Main Page/Archive 4, which didn't exist before the spam-bot created it.

Thanks, JamesH; after midnight local time, my brain starts going backwards. :) - Wmcduff 07:53, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
