Anime pirates / malware sites

[1] (wiki search show similar spam now in Tamil cinema and Newgrounds and an entire subpage at Wikipedia:WikiProject Spam/LinkReports/

[2] (site seems to host some reviews, but if they link to pirate/warez site it is likely not reliable anyway)

[3] (not used on wiki currently)

I noticed a relatively high number of similar spam additions to the recently created KissAnime article, all of which seem to try to abuse Wikipedia to for some link rankings or worse. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 06:14, 14 September 2020 (UTC)

Appears to be a URL shortener, used here on EN] on a page that gets a decent amout of spam. I don't see any other uses of it, but if this spammer has used it once, they'll use it again. Ravensfire (talk) 19:18, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

Target IP gambling spam

I am going to block some IP ranges as the spam from the poker and gambling crew is continuing as IP addresses, and there are some ranges that we can neutralise for the direct spam. I will block with regex for the /24s as that becomes easier to manage with little downside. I am going to guess they will have other IP addresses/ranges.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:23, 22 September 2020 (UTC)

I don't see why totallympics\.com is blacklisted. I needed that to source some sports events (for example https:// for fr:Championnats d'Afrique de plongeon 2019 or for https:// for fr:George Marshall (athlétisme)). ping to @Naurumya: --Rashinseita (talk) 00:58, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

@Rashinseita: It was problematically spammed at one point. I would suggest that you broach the issue with the wiki where you are wishing to cite it as a source and see if they will whitelist the domain in part or in full. Generally it is unusual for forums to be authoritative and reliable sources.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:47, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
