What to do if you have a technical problem with OJS:
1. Search the forum
. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page
or from our Google Custom Search
, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend
searching the forum for said error.
2. Check the FAQ
to see if your question or error has already been resolved.
3. Post a question
, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion
subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development
does anyone have an idea what the fake accounts the FAQ is talking about are created for? Why would someone do that over and over again? Or why would someone program a worm that does it?
Has anyone investigated this?

At a guess: spammers probably aren't selective about where they try to put content; they identify forms, instruct auto-submitter tools in how to submit to them, and press "go". There is no particular benefit to abusing OJS this way (short of e.g. actually publishing spam content, which would require a complicit editor) but they don't stick around long enough to verify that.
