del.icio.us is spammed

Finally someone found out how to spam del.icio.us. For nearly two days you'll get a link named “Streets of LA - Massive Free Online RPG” on the top of the frontpage. Just refresh a few times to see how it pops up again and again.

The user cr0cxy seems to use the API to delete and readd the link every few seconds. Just refresh his user page to observe it.

It's really annoying and if more people do it will render the frontpage unusable. I send a mail to the del.icio.us staff - let's hope they find a solution.

Update: Looks like the same guy now continues as cantstopme
