[sword-devel] CrossWire wiki vandalism?

I'm mostly happy with everything that's been implemented & suggested. 
There are only a couple of things I might do differently (probably based 
on my own behavior on the wiki combined with our universal hatred of 
actually facing captchas):

This I would probably have left off. We did have problems with link 
spam, but not for a while now. Now it's mostly gibberish. I can't even 
remember the last time I saw link spam.

Every edit would be bad (and I think that's what everyone was up in arms 
against). On the other hand, every page creation would seem like a good 
time to show a captcha. Legitimate page creations are relatively few & 
far between, but spammers create them often.
