I was surprised to find that there is a bunch of spam that has been
added.  The wiki says that the pages are "immutable", which makes me
wonder if they were posted using a security hole in the gnewsense wiki
(Moin Moin).  Perhaps the wiki software needs to be updated?

You should be able to edit most pages when you're logged in.

If possible, please enable TEXTCHA to prevent these spams:

The textcha feature is enabled for some months now. I've only put in easy problems so far because I want our wiki editing to be very accessible, e.g. not just for English speakers. We've also enabled "BadContent" filtering a few days ago, which seems to have helped a bit, but some spam is still getting through. I'd appreciate any other tips to lower our spam count.
