::So is it an IP ban, too? If so, is he using a proxy? If so, we could try blocking all of the proxy IPs listed at proxy.org - I imagine that's what he would try to be using if he was a human. If it is a bot, I did also notice that the time between account creation and creating the spam is about 10-30 minutes, so if an article with the weird capitalization I mentioned is created in the first hour after an account is created, it could be blocked? We could also try blocking any link posted by the spammer and prevent any changes (including new article creation) if that link is posted. I doubt that MediaWiki provides such flexibility for those last two things, sadly, though. [[User:MyDreamName|MyDreamName]] 22:55, 16 August 2011 (BST)

:::I also noticed that all of the spamming accounts have exactly two capital letters in them in a kind of "first name, last name" deal. Now I seriously doubt MediaWiki would be THAT flexible to deal with that, but it's worth noting. [[User:MyDreamName|MyDreamName]] 01:09, 17 August 2011 (BST)
