Spambots

So apparently, since the last time I looked in, spambots have gone from unsigned edits to existing pages to registering users and creating new articles on wikis en masse. I'm looking into the issue. Sorry.

I'd suggest that you start authorizing accounts on the database/wiki yourself to put a stop to this. And the same for the forum, it seems these spambots/spammers have fairly predictable names so it shouldn't be to hard to tell a spammer from the real thing.
