Both of these do have spam links, BTW --- in their signatures rather than the bodies of their posts.


Yes, that was also something I said in my post (I've copied the specific section above). :P

Also, even if the posts were deleted, those spam links would remain on the site on the users' profile pages - do the admins have the ability to remove the links from those?

Can someone add me as "trusted" on the wiki? Apparently I've made edits before, but that must have been before the Spam Nation attacked.

Done! "DigitalCross" not "digitalcross", though -- case sensitivity is definitely a thing on the LifeWiki.
