SuggestionOld questions as spam targets Pin

Every time I've looked at the first page of QA over the past couple of weeks, a certain set of questions posted between 2010 and 2018 are always at the top - seemingly all related to URLs and redirections.

For example, at the moment, on the first page of 20 questions, only six were posted within the last year:



There's never any indication of what dragged them back to the top of the list. I suspect they're being actively targeted by a spam-bot, which isn't actually managing to get past the moderation filter.

If we can't have the questions drop back to their old position when a spam answer is deleted, and we can't prevent them from jumping to the top when a moderated spam answer is posted, is it perhaps worth "locking" these threads once they've been targeted multiple times?
