Vandalism in 2005
- Someone named Vasa26 has been spamming the ifwiki. It's very annoying. This user has spammed us on Oct 3 and Oct 22, 2005 (so far). All pages linked from the Main Page are altered unless they are protected. This user is not benign; he or she deletes content.
- 2chemp has also spammed several pages (including this one), on Nov 14. This spammer does not appear to delete content.
