filled with some serious spam.

Indeed. Perhaps they got ticked off that I started implementating
anti-spam measures yesterday. I’ve now blocked the entire /8 that this
spammer was coming from. I’ve got a couple more tricks up my sleeve, but
yeah. I’m displeased :confused:

It’s one of the good/bad things about Wiki’s… I don’t know about
Kwiki, but I know that some allow you to disallow changes by people “not
a member of a group” (like on TWiki, I can say “Only people who are
members of (say) RTUsers can edit this page”)–granted, it’s a bit more
work on your end, but less work than, say, having to clean up all those
wiki pages when spammers decide to play.

Best,

And that also kills new users’ ability to provide feedback. Part of the
solution is making sure that these twits don’t get any google pagerank
out of the deal.

I know… like I said it’s one of the bad sides to wiki’s… :-/

All in all though, I have to say … thank you and everyone else who’s
contributed to the Kwiki… it really is a wonderful resource!

I tried to revert it.
But someone should lock out that account quickly…
Anybody can get an account.
