Long-lived spam via Yahoo! search

Back in May, I noticed some spam in my Moin Moin wiki, and fixed it.

As this Yahoo! Site Explorer view of taint.org demonstrates, Yahoo!’s search is still showing these results, partly; despite the spam content being long deleted (example ), they still show the spam title and URL, despite the fact that the title and text no longer contains those spam keywords.

Annoyingly, I’m still seeing referrer clickthroughs from search.yahoo.com to these deleted pages from lusers looking for porn, as a result. Come on Yahoo!, fix your search to notice the title change at least, so people don’t think the pages still contain porn!

    You’d want to cop yourself on now you’re a dad, you can’t be the SpamAssassin and PornNinja!

    The site explorer link isn’t working for me but it sounds borked if that is the case.

    hey Chris — you have to log in to use the Site Explorer (annoyingly).

    Johnny — I know! can’t be having that kind of muckiness on taint.org!
