Most notably robots, script-kiddies, sometimes clicking-farms.

When you'll see a bunch of posts suddenly appearing about selling you cheap vaccine or hacked netflix accounts, you'll know how a spam looks like. Thankfully the moderators are purging those pretty quickly, that's why you can see any right now.

Cheers,

(I'll move this topic to "About this site" where it should be)

We also have auto-moderation for new user posts/topics, so non-moderators don't see most of the spam (sometimes there's accounts that post a reasonable initial post, then spam - or were created before the moderation requirement was added).

I still do no understand why anyone would choose to spend their valuable time spamming rather than doing work that matters and initiate growth. They are just pathetic.

For money. Sometimes, in some parts of the world, it's the only job they can get. :/

We even had what seemed like a small DDOS attack this week where a bunch of ip address were hitting the front page of the wiki as fast as possible.
