Hi Chris,

AFAIK every open wiki works like this.

I think we should restrict accounts to people that ask for it in the
mailing list. It won't eliminate spam, but will reduce it

As to the current users, we can reset everyone's password (minus
people you already know are real) and ask them to show up in the list.
The wiki is not *that* critical to be a problem.

I tried to delete the pages myself, but I couldn't. I tried to clean
them up and move to SPAM, but there are far too many... :( Anyone with
power to delete will have to clean that up.
