Two days ago as I post, I deleted a spam post that was made to the His Dark Materials wiki, and blocked the user. But checking his contributions to see if there was anything else I needed to do, I saw that he had also founded two spam-only wikis, Caoshoes and Mosionshoes. So I reported this on the VSTF Wiki "report problem IPs/users" page and he was blocked (I presume globally).

However, over 50 hours after my report, the two rogue wikis still remain in existence; I've blanked the ordinary pages (by replacing the contents with the Hormel Foods URL), but they still have plenty of spam in the form of blog posts which I can't touch. Surely they should have been nuked by now? -- RobertATfm (talk) 14:42, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, the 2 wikis are listed on our report page, so they'll be deleted the next time Staff clear out spam wikis -- RandomTime 16:29, September 5, 2012 (UTC)
I see; so it's just a case of "the VSTF grinds slow, but they grind exceeding fine". (As I thankfully don't need to visit their wiki very often, I wasn't aware of that page.) -- RobertATfm (talk) 18:53, September 5, 2012 (UTC)
