Quentin, I can add a class B IP, so that, as long as you connect to the
wiki thru the same provider, it should be ok.
Bill, I've added a class B IP for you, could you check out that you
can edit?

`Thanks for the help. I'm not sure what IP you used for me. I just got
``the message "Editing not allowed for 67.97.7.16 / 67.97.7.16: user, ip, or
``network is blocked."
`

I agree entirely that a wiki w/ a login would be better. But I don't
see, how new users could do w/out sending a mail to at least one
current wiki maintainer.

`Could it be made so that new users (who register automatically through the
``website) are allowed onto help pages that may be blanked from time to
``time (probably generally to categorize the content onto other pages)?
`

`Also, I noticed that you had NOFOLLOW setup on all the pages. With this,
``I also think that the system is diminished because if I understand
``correctly, google will not really index the site. Perhaps an addition to
``the above suggestion would be to have nofollow on the world(ish) editable
``pages all add nofollow while other pages could be indexable.
`

`Finally, there should be all kinds of rate limiters possible to limit the
``number of comments per hour and per day per IP address. That by itself
``would protect from everything but bot nets.
`

`My thoughts are: how does wikipedia handle such things. They allow bots,
``but they don't seem to have a major problem with large scale
``vandalization.
