Spam in IMSLP journal?

Postby lekro » Thu Oct 09, 2014 4:52 am

Hello everyone:

I was recently browsing the IMSLP journal, and found these peculiar spam messages by a user "test."

http://imslpjournal.org/author/test/

They were apparently posted in March (!) and still haven't been cleaned up! Two or three posts were made after these messages and the author supposedly didn't even look below the valid posts.
Please do so as soon as possible.

Perhaps the authentication system has been messed up. I saw this post in the Journal section:
viewtopic.php?f=25&t=7512

As the official blog of IMSLP, the website that is currently diffusing through the classical music community, the IMSLP journal needs to be better maintained.

Thanks.
Lekro

edit: wrong section, whoops.

That's bizarre--I don't know if Philidor is still around so much but I'll try to contact Nick directly. More care really should be taken for these things.

Ok - thanks.
