Possible, but Alan admins several public wikis that don't require
sign-ups to edit, so I'd say that was significant relevant experience.

It's a successful attack. As with you, there are lots of blocked attacks
and IPs. Before the patches were introduced we would get spammed a lot,
sometimes with every page getting hit. Things are much more under
control now and have been for over year.

The HantsLUG wiki is in the first hit on Google for quite a few terms,
and often in the first couple of pages for many more. There is a large
collection of technical articles which get the best google rankings.
