Serious SPAM issue

You've got a serious spammer or bot problem going on right now. There's a rediculous amount of posts featuring scantily clad asian women since last night.

Wow! Something happened!

All the spamcollections are gone alongside the bots.

Whoever did it: THANKS! :)

We're trying to keep ahead of them, but please bear with us.

If you happen upon a spam item, please simply flag as such and move on. Posting links to it here is actually counter-productive, and in a sense helps the spammers.

Thanks for the heads-up everyone!

With the Android-App you can flag also collections. Even the spam-ones.

Thanks, I was just trying to be helpful posting a link to the users page, as some of them had 10 or more spamsructabiles, and lots of collections which cannot be flagged.

Good to see the site back to its old self.

problem is they use valid instructables in their collections, so we are unable to mark them as spam. only the collection is spam

Seems like your changes on the page paid off. Havent seen korean spambots and 'ibles for many days now...

Some post in the forums, but they are 403-walled. Not a big problem...

Well done!

Haha, that's actually a bug - the site can't cope with the character set.

Oh! then it is not a bug but a feature! :)
