Summary: AntiSpoof not working?
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: AntiSpoof

Dear developers,

In the mediawiki page "Extension:Antispoof" I can read that AntiSpoof is an
extension for preventing confusable usernames from being created; yet spoofed
usernames are still being created. Recent examples:

Legitimate user | Spoofed user 

Laura Fiorucci | Låura Fiorucci

Lucien leGrey | Lucien le6rey 

Poco a poco | Poco a ƿoco 

Comae | Comæ 

Sabbut | ЅаЬЬцт

BetoCG | ВетоС6


Those usernames above have been part of a recent impersonation campaign at
eswiki (all the accounts were created there and tryied to impersonate the above
named bureaucrats - see logs/SUL/etc.). Something should be done to prevent
this IMHO.
