Same problem for me:

Same problem for me:


Over 200 spam issues since last friday. 


I don't have the time to delete them one by one. 


Mass deletion, and an option to disable anonymous issues would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @muellerflorian  ,

Thanks for reaching out to the Community!

I've moved your post to a new question for easier tracking.

Our engineering team can help with either:

  • flag issues as Spam
  • completely remove issues

Please keep in mind that there is a possibility for false positives to be included in the flagging or removal. If you are concerned about irreversible loss, we would suggest requesting flagging, so that you can review the issues.

Before we proceed, please make your issue tracker private (Repository Settings > Issue Tracker > Private issue trackerto prevent the creation of new spam issues. I will post an update here once our engineering team has mitigated the issue and when it's safe to make your issue tracker public again.

Afterward, please let us know whether you would like us to proceed with flagging issues as spam in your issue tracker or removing them :

  • Removal: If you would like us to proceed with the removal, please provide a range of issue IDs to remove. You could also include issues that you want to be excepted from this range. E.g. for the range "200-3700 EXCEPT 3256-3260" we will remove issues with id from 200 until 3700, except for the issues in the range 3256-3260. Ranges should be fully inclusive, meaning the number on both ends will be removed.
  • Flagging as Spam: If you would prefer to mark the issues as Spam, so you can review them later, please provide an Issue ID as a starting point. All the issues after the starting point ID will be marked as Spam.

Let me know in case you have any questions.

Thank you, @muellerflorian  !

There is an option in repository settings to disable anonymous issues. At least for me, this seems to have stopped the spam (fingers crossed), though other comments suggests it might not work for everyone.

Thanks a lot, I somehow overlooked this, I enabled this now

For me, I can't even change the settings since it's not my repo, I only have contributor access, but I still get the emails. The only thing I can do is disable all notifications on my profile, which is not ideal.
