All the same number. Google shows many other sites hit with that number also. Bet if one should call that number, they will end up in serious do-do of some sort! Glad you caught it. It's 11:13 and still in the Wiki.

Yes - still in the wiki,
rather than editing it and causing the spammer to return to undo the edits, waiting on the Wiki Senior Staff to a. Block the Spammer b. Permenently remove the spam

We've got some more - someone decided to get smart and just spam a particular article, in this case...

People who do this crap should be horse whipped in public, hopefully to discourage others from doing these $*#(&* spams! Just 10 lashes should be enough I think.
You mods do a great job here at RR; but you guys go unrewarded and not recognized for your work. So I for one say thank you for a job well done.
