Hi,

on a website I'm administrating, someone tried to post comment spam
containing links to the w3.org supporters pages. For example:

http://www.w3.org/Consortium/supporters?
key=99e9239acb94a568d7430788001143ca&buy-viagra.html 
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/supporters?
key=99e9239acb94a568d7430788001143ca&buy-cialis.html

.... and a few more of the same sort. I'd suggest you remove those ASAP
and maybe think of ways to try and prevent further misuse in the future.

regards,
Dirk Haun
