[sword-devel] spam problem with wiki

It's frustrating to me too.

It seemed to be working but let one through. I then tried to add Bad- 
behavior as a second line of defense, but there was a database error  
that brought down the site. So then I tried adding our own filter to  
the SpamBlacklist, according to their mechanism. Then we started to  
getting spam. So I reverted that. Tried to figure out Bad-behavior  
again but couldn't. So I left it the way it was when it seemed to  

And then I went to bed only to wake to this.

Anyway, I poked around and don't see any obvious way to change the  
sites behavior as a whole. I'm going to do some reading on it. Never  
wanted to become a wiki expert or learn YAPL (yet another programming  
language), i.e. php.

In Him we find our being,
