A VERY determined spammer has been hacking away at
https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language on the Codex.
We’ve tried a variety of ways to stop him, but he keeps on, including
contacting one of the volunteers directly and complaining that his
spammy links were removed and his account closed. He just opened a new
account and kept going. He does not have a word of WordPress anywhere
on his site and nor in the links to the mobile ads that he is stuffing
into that article. We’re looking at ways to stop him more permanently,
but his fascination with that article has caused us to protect it and
block access to only admins for the next few months.
During that time, if you have something to add or edit on that page,
if any of you have admin status with the Codex, you will be able to
access the page. If not, please contact us on the
mailing list, or me directly, and we’ll
Our fear is that he will target other pages on the Codex, so we are
looking at other serious options, but we just wanted you to know about
that page as it is so critical to your work that it be maintained and
updated. We’re sorry for the inconvenience. We’ll let you know if
anything changes on that. Thanks!!
