Wiki spam

[ #19722 ]
It took me a long time to get used to the idea of a Wiki. I didn't trust them for a long time, at least not for serious documentation, because I was afraid some jerk would come in and delete the whole thing, or that they would be defaced in general.

Well, it has started to happen on a more regular basis I think, just as I was starting to get comfortable with wikis. Many of the Ruby folks are noticing an increase in wiki spam, which I guess is mostly done in some attempt to increase page ranking I'm told.

I guess we'll have to all put captcha's in our wikis in the future. Death to the wiki spammers.
