[sword-devel] Wiki Vandalism/Spam

About a year ago we started blocking spammers, but we only blocked for  
a year. They are now reinstated and are spamming again. Bummer.

Anyway, we are rolling back their changes as we see them happening and  
blocking them forever.

Our basic spam handling mechanism is to make accounts wait 4 days  
before posting. This appears to have worked well. We'll continue to  
block spammers and see if that ultimately works. Otherwise we'll go to  
some form of "captcha", taking handicaps into account.

Feel free to help us block spammers and rolling back their junk.

In Christ,
