Since 25 August, Wikispooks has been the victim of a DNS attack and their website is inaccessible for most. We are sharing some of their articles until their website is, once again, accessible to all. To avoid complications with sharing our article we have not included the many embedded links on the Wikispooks page, some of which may be links to other pages within their website. However, we have attached a pdf copy of their page which includes those links. Please bear in mind that their pages are edited and updated from time to time.
