There really needs to be a report button on a script/user page.

Took me a while to find how to report malicious scripts. Maybe there should be a (big) button under the install button?

This is the script in question: https://userscripts-mirror.org/scripts/show/181284

Because of scripts like this Im currently writing a script (fight fire with fire) which parses all urls found in the source and lists them per domain on the script page. This wouldnt be hard to implement on the site itself I think. I realize it wouldnt be difficult to obscure urls but it will still filter out most harmful scripts on this site.

This script for example is listed as a google search enhancer. Even the most clueless user would know somethings up when the only url used in the source is facebook.com :)

EDIT: out of interest, how many upvotes for 'bad' scripts does it take before an admin takes a look at it? I wouldnt mind helping out if youre short on people.

With no evidence to the contrary, I have to conclude that it would take an infinite number of upvotes before admin takes a look at it, because there is no admin of this site. I'm willing to be proven wrong, by the way.

This user is posting a lot of spam, 380+ scripts in one day. https://userscripts-mirror.org/users/635347/scripts

And if you look up the phrase "How to" here, you will see many thousands of scripts posted by different accounts daily, that are obviously the same spammer individual.

I really hope you guys get a better captcha for submissions, or at the least rotate the type of captchas so they aren't as easily exploited.

This site is such a great resource, but it's really disturbing how spammed the site has become over the past few months. If nothing else, throw some adds on the site and/or run a donation drive, to hire someone to deal with this %*&$...

The Guides section is also being spammed

Adding captcha to registration should stop a lot of bot-spams

Tried to search the scripts for "youtube", got the following, mostly spammed by autogenerated accounts:

I'm thinking you might need some better captchas.

Most of these accounts seem to be created at April 12.

Also their spam posts are mostly like "How To Do Somthing On Device" with only a bunch of links and tags inside the description and a link in the sourcecode.
