There's a patch [1] (perl) written for the wiki software [2] that
HantsLUG [3] uses which passes comments/edits through spamassassin.
It's not switched on / implemented in the wiki because it absolutely
murders the server and doesn't return results quickly enough for the
web experience. Of course if you've got more hardware to throw at it,
or you can somehow queue up the edits and pass them through
spamassassin in the background later that might be preferable.
