Possibly huge spam network[edit]

After following a huge path of spam starting from a Huggle revert, I found a user who is responsible for a huge list of spam like this: BellicoseSouthernBelle (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · what links to user page · count · COIBot · user page logs · x-wiki · status · Edit filter search · Google · StopForumSpam)

Based on my usage of the external links finder and continually following the "path" of spam, I think this user may be operating a large number of accounts such as: Skbcabey (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · what links to user page · count · COIBot · user page logs · x-wiki · status · Edit filter search · Google · StopForumSpam)

I've tried to clean up as much as I can, but I'm unable to take care of the entire mess especially after being led to BellicoseSouthernBelle's contribution history. Would appreciate any help. -download 21:53, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

Another note - based on edits like this, this user seems to have a good knowledge of Wikipedia. I wouldn't be surprised if he/she is running a number of accounts to spam. -download 21:54, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
After reviewing this user's contribution history, it looks very sinister. On one hand the user is doing blatant spam like this, and creating pages of unnotable people, but on another hand seems to have a very clear understanding of what is acceptable on Wikipedia. -download 22:00, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
