I'm putting together a metrics report on off-season activity and just noticed that our community search was rather inundated with junk searches over the summer. We received thousands of searches for the terms "_change_me_" and "1". Of course many were unsuccessful because they were searching from specific boards, categories, etc.
Anyone else experience this or know who was behind it? More curiosity at this point than anything as I'll be manually adjusting the search results to remove the junk.
Hi @Wendy_S -
We also saw another - much smaller - burst of this spammy search Nov 13 and 14. Seems like it'll be a recurring thing until there's a way to limit search usage or some other blocking techniques for anonymous users. Yuck.
