Propose merging Spambot into Spamming[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result of this discussion was to not merge. MartinZ02 (talk) 14:16, 8 January 2016 (UTC)

Much of the information on Spambot is duplicated here, and lacks citations there. I don't see a good reason to have a separate page for something that can be easily and briefly explained here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Robert the Devil (talkcontribs) 22:32, 9 November 2015

  • Oppose Spambot is a valid narrowing of the topic with enough written on it to sustain a separate article. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 23:49, 9 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose I don't see there would be much benefit. It's likely spambot would be able to be expanded, if not now then in the future. Johnuniq (talk) 01:10, 10 November 2015 (UTC)
  • Oppose Revising Spambot to minimize overlap (if any) would be far more efficient than increasing the size of an already large article. B1naryatr0phy (talk) 15:34, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Methods which spammers use to catch user data[edit]

In this article there is no information about methods which potentially can be used by spammers. I wish to add links to Parsing and Speech recognition pages. That technologies can be used by spammers. End user must know more about the root of the problem for warning purpuses. RippleSax (talk) 13:46, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

If you can find WP:RELIABLE SOURCES to support this, then go for it.
Personally I can't see the relevance. Neither have any substantial relationship to "spamming" or "how spammers steal your soul / personal data / email address". If you do add links they will have to be sourced and they will have to give some context about how they're related to spam, not just be stuck as bare links in a See also or saying "spammers use parsers".

Interesting paper. Cognitive basis is allways morse-related metric. RippleSax (talk) 22:20, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
That paper has no relevance whatsoever to how spam is generated or targeted. Viam Ferream (talk) 09:12, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

his article is about unsolicited or undesirable electronic messages. For the food, see Spam (food). For information specific to email, see Email spam. For other uses, see Spam (disambiguation). An email box folder littered with spam messages

Electronic spamming is the use of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited messages (spam), especially advertising, as well as sending messages repeatedly on the same site. While the most widely recognized form of spam is email spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media: instant messaging spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, Web search engine spam, spam in blogs, wiki spam, online classified ads spam, mobile phone messaging spam, Internet forum spam, junk fax transmissions, social spam, spam mobile apps,[1] television advertising and file sharing spam. It is named after Spam, a luncheon meat, by way of a Monty Python sketch in which Spam is included in every dish.[2] The food is stereotypically disliked/unwanted, so the word came to be transferred by analogy. अपने लेख अनचाही या अवांछनीय इलेक्ट्रॉनिक संदेशों के बारे में है। भोजन के लिए, स्पैम (खाद्य) देखें। ईमेल करने के लिए विशेष जानकारी के लिए, ईमेल स्पैम देखें। अन्य उपयोगों के लिए, स्पैम (बहुविकल्पी) देखें। एक ईमेल बॉक्स फ़ोल्डर स्पैम संदेशों से अटे पड़े
