Reason: This page was used to report spammers, but now it's useless, and ArchWiki:Reports, ArchWiki talk:Administrators or an admin's talk page should be used. Blocked accounts are listed in Special:BlockList. It's better to redirect this title to ArchWiki:Reports. (Discuss in ArchWiki talk:Spam#)

* [[Special:Contributions/<SPAMMER>|<SPAMMER>]]

As it is clear that this is only a temporary solution, confer to the (not so) current discussion in the forums for a long-term solution that is still to be found.

The list

Blocked spam accounts should be deleted from time to time to keep everything neat.

A list of blocked IP addresses and usernames can be accessed under Special:BlockList.
