Dear Dorothea,

Thank you for bringing this to my intention. I have deleted the erroneous submissions.

NASA has chosen to allow RID submission through the CCSDS website and this introduces the possibility for spam submissions such as these. We regularly review our website logs and block IP addresses responsible for malicious actions. In the past, this has been sufficient to prevent repeated abuse of the RID system. If we continue to receive spam submissions we will take action, such as introducing reCAPTCHA like we have for mailing list subscriptions.

Best regards,

Michael Blackwood

Dear Michael,

while looking something up on the CCSDS Website, I stumbled over some very strange "RIDs" attached to some of the recently completed reviews.

For example:

- CCSDS 766.1-P-2.1: a RID short title "Pastillas Adelgazar Chile"

- CCSDS 401.0-RP-30.1: a RID short title "Testosterone Booster Canada"

- CCSDS 766.3-R-2: a RID short title "https://infopokers.xyz Info Poker Online Terbaik dan Terpercaya Di Indonesia 2020<https://infopokers.xyz Info%20Poker%20Online%20Terbaik%20dan%20Terpercaya%20Di%20Indonesia%202020>"

The "Description of requested change" field also shows some very strange contents.

Did not check if there are more... Please have a look at it and delete this items a.s.a.p.

We should also check with the website guys if there are ways to prevent entries like that for future reviews.

Best regards,
