I've been suffering lately from Wiki spammers on the AxKit wiki. The spammers are simply adding links in to their porn pages to get a higher google pagerank.
I do not like this one bit. But what can I do?
The surprising thing is that they are actually adding the links in POD format. So someone is either already a perl programmer, or taking the time to learn the format to add the links in. And it's obviously not automated.
The worst thing is that the AxKit wiki maintains a linked in history, so even when I revert the change the spammer still has those links in place in the history view.
One possible solution is to require a login. But I hate that idea. Another possible solution is to show the raw content in the history view (i.e. raw POD) so that links aren't links. But that doesn't mean I stop having the job of janitor.
