What we've been doing in the past instead of redirecting the page is to replace the contents with the category:spammer tag. For that matter, we tag the spammer on their Talk page with it as well. That way, the admins don't have to wade through the recent changes page and can just check the one directory.

Also, just for giggles, check out The Spamming of Erfwiki. -- No one in particular 17:17, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

I should ask you to be a little careful with the templates you use and where you drop them. Only deploy the spammer tags on User pages. That way the admins, when they finally get off their cloud, can sweep the category tag it drops and quickly deploy bans to them, or just delete the accounts. Adding it to pages the bots name after themselves outside the User namespace just clutters that category up. Adding the delete template to the User pages is also superfluous, since the spammer template implies the deletion anyway. Plus, less means less data being hosted. I know it isn't much, but adding both templates doubles the average amount of crap stored which does build up across multiple spambots, especially when we have thousands of the little fuckers. --Pickled Tink 20:48, 16 March 2012 (EDT)
