That shows poor or inadequate spam protection rather than anything else.
IME wikis that require logins suffer from reduced activity and quickly
become outdated. What a wiki should have is some decent anti-spam
protection and some active moderators. I'd put our HantsLUG wiki and the
infopoint wiki up as examples.
