[pmwiki-users] "version=x" GET parameter? Link spamming supposed.

Hello All,

recently I got a link removal request from a site owner assuming a
"Penguin issue" due to links from (not only) my site.

He reported links from my site to his site with a strange "version"
parameter in the URL, e.g.


with different numbers ranging from 1 to 5.

As far as I see, PmWiki doesn't use the "version" parameter. Can
anybody imagine where such links could come from?
