Issue #119 resolved

"simple printer of nested lists" spam packages

Yu-Jie Lin avatarYu-Jie Lin created an issue

I noticed there are some new packages all with "A simple printer of nested lists" as description:


I checked a few of them, they are basically the same dummy code with the following in the main script/module:

def print_lol(...):

I believe it's using the web/url field to lure people into the websites, some don't even have packages uploaded, just a link.

SIdenote: I noticed that because I subscribed to the new packages RSS and started to see many packages with different names in last few days and kept seeing same sentence/description over and over. Now I finally realize that those are spams.
