Default Spam infestation on Abandonia Reloaded

In case anybody is still listening: There are lots of spam links on Abandonia Reloaded and they don't seem to be intended. They are in the game description (even removing the original description) and in the requirements sidebar. Take a look at the page for Zak McKracken Between Time and Space for an extreme example.

Wow.
I will PM Frodo (Reloaded admin, inactive) and inform Abovo. Not much else I can do.

Just for information, I reported the same problem last year, but somehow my post went without any reaction:

Hey everyone

I apologise for all the horrible spam on Reloaded. I've emailed Above for advice about it, but they don't seem to want to reply.

Please bear with me, while I try and figure something out.

I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but something is amiss for the admin Nick of Abandonia Reloaded. According to the reloaded chatbox, he seems to be in (clinical) depression. I also believe I recalled a dedication site, but I'm just drawing straws. There was some recent activity from him, but it's tipping down. It doesn't help to see overabundance of spam growing into places. I'm not sure if the admin is behind the spam for jokes, but it is getting pretty reckless. It could be by the neglectful/indirect/direct action by the webmaster/server as well. I'm only glad that there is a matter of account view restriction against the massive intrusive activities. Something must be done about the post protocols. Even then, I don't think that switching hosting services would do any good. Therefore, as a matter of upholding fault tolerance, contingency plans need to be instated. Since there is a majority of abandonia staff, I was wondering if some can transfer manpower to maintain/archive reloaded. I was looking to update a certain game info page, but response has been technically/statically non-existent. I am afraid that the site will be going down under soon enough. Hopefully, there is enough time and resources to save the site before we must abandon ship.
