gnokii Wiki spam

David Boddie
Hi,

(I realise I'm sending this to a mailing list - hopefully someone with Wiki
admin rights is reading the list.)

I found your project Wiki via a Web search for AT command errors. The page for
that is very useful, so thanks for putting that up.

It seems that write access has been disabled because of spam. You might also
want to disable account creation, too, because there seems to be a stream of
new accounts being created:

Regards,

David

Thanks for the info. I don't have admin-access to wiki, but I run the
hosting-box for the wiki.

There is a re-captcha for the new user creation and it is functional, I
just tested it. When the wiki was transferred to my box, there was a
brief period when re-captcha was malfunctioning due to my configuration
error, but it is not the case now. What I'll do is upgrade the Mediawiki
and the plugins to latest versions. Hope that helps some.

Perhaps somebody is Mechanical Turking the captcha word matching? The
volume is reasonable low, so that it could be due to manual work.

Regards,
Jari Turkia
