Notes:
 
Eloe77, Sbesancon90, Anpullen8, and others have been posting articles (either original or scraped) that are way out of the wiki's scope. They can be identified by having external links, a long title, and XHTML newlines that look like "<br/> <br/>" with some random Unicode space character in the middle that for some reason isn't matched by the "\s" class. Some of them use homoglyphic Cyrillic characters, but others don't, so that's not reliable for detection.
