I hope this may qualify as a topic for the Council, since this a) may
affect the external perception of the wiki and the TEI, and b) currently
affects the productivity of at least two Council members (, ), and
the fix doesn't seem difficult.
Spambot technology is getting better and better and we get more and more
quasi-intelligent spam in the wiki. A long while ago, James and I
discussed the possibility of having a captcha system installed in the
wiki, but nothing came out of that. Maybe now is the time. The wiki
has the relevant hooks, so it seems only a matter of putting those hooks
I mean a captcha for when you create an account, not for individual
edits. Spambots are just good at creating accounts.
