I guess I'm still not that proficient in checking wiki records. I'd like to ask, just what exactly is he spamming on?

Not necessarily spamming, but he/she/it went to several pages and added poorly formatted links at the top of the page, which seems to be mostly discussion pages.

Spoiler! :

As you see, there's a bunch of random crap above the Contents box. Also, going to those links isn't advised; though I haven't gone myself.

He's not "adding" but "replacing". He replaced the whole section with his link.

In case whoever did not notice, frank530 created 7 threads in a row in the News sub-forums, 4 of which talks about golf, the others talk about some wedding dress, and what not... I deleted all 7 threads away, so you guys might not have seen them...

@frank530: if you are NOT a spammer and would like to confront me on my actions, just sound off.
God!!
You need not forgive me.
For those I love,
The violence brought about by sinful men
Shall now be used once more.
If you were created to save this world,
If there is a single shred of hope left for the future of mankind,
I am very sorry, but, please begone!

I don't mind blocking him but if you look here, there isn't any contribution...
If the vandalism is deleted I can't see it.

I've deleted two spam pages in the past two weeks. Both were advertisements. Both had been cleared of their content by other users of the wiki, with notes in the change log for somebody to come around and delete them. After verifying that they were indeed spam, I deleted them.

I don't recall the spammer's ID in either case...
