Spam domain:

Being spammed across multiple wikis, admittedly by individuals associated with company, for purposes of promotion. (Example: See comment at en.wikipedia, "I'm writing because I work for a movie review site,, the Movie Review Query Engine"). Thank you for your time, -- Cirt (talk) 22:50, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Seems this link has been added in good faith by established editors at other projects as well, doesn't seem to qualify for global blacklisting now but I'll welcome second opinions here. Finn Rindahl 15:29, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Spammed on various user talkpages on Commons, commons:Category:Sockpuppets_of_Huo638671, also on en.wp per en:User talk:Linksoflondonstore and en:User talk:Liubaiying+userpage. --Martin H. 05:57, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Spammed on en.wikipedia, also a little at German as well. See spamming, [1]. Thank you, -- Cirt (talk) 19:09, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Top five users adding this:

There are 97 links from enwiki, one link from zh and hu. At de it is only one link from userspace.

Possibly related domain

It seems to me that there is a likely conflict of interest for many of the additions, the link has however (it seems) also been added by editors without COI. This, pluss that it hasn't really been added crosswiki makes me think this does not warrant global blacklisting. Second opinions welcome. Finn Rindahl 17:37, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Don't even want to think about it. So now we can make a copy of every page we can't link because it is blacklisted, and still link it.   Added. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 10:07, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
