1. Notes Spam

    Just a quick note, tonight (hopefully Alan's planet-php 0Wn4ge doesn't prevent this from showing up).

    I just deleted a bunch of notes (see below) from the user manual, all spamming for www.throughhosting.com (hyperlink omitted intentionally).

    If you were thinking about going with throughhosting.com, my personal opinion is that you'd be much better served using someone who doesn't use public forums, and php.net resources to illegitimately promote their product.

    Bad karma, and I'm not talking CVS permissions.

    • I hate it when they do that. Maybe we should be checking some blacklists prior to accepting the note submissions?

    • This is the fourth day that I'm back on the php-notes list, and this is also the fourth day I noticed this spam.
      A blacklist is indeed a very good idea.
      It would even be better if all notes maintainers with a cvs account can add words, not only people with cvs karma.
