Wiki.rubyonrails.org spam

Hi,

Who’s in charge of wiki.rubyonrails.org? The spam is ridiculous. The
maintainer needs to step up and take action.

With a wiki, a reader is a maintainer. The rollback links are at the
bottom of the pages. Go for it.

This question is probably better asked on the Rails mailing list.

For wikis in general, though, the “maintainer” is often the collection
of people who use and value the wiki. For a large wiki there is really
no way a single person can look after it.

If you see spam, remove it.

A little logic captcha I’ve come up with (details here:
http://www.robsanheim.com/brain_buster) will hopefully be in place
soon on the Rails wiki. I’ve been working with one of the maintainers
to get it setup… It may just be a temporary solution, as I think
they want to move things to Ruse once its publicly released

Yeah the rails wiki is totally spammed hard. But there is a small

team of people(myself included) that are working on migrating the
rails wiki to Jim W.'s Ruse wiki that now powers rubygarden.
Ruse is made to stop spam and make it easy to maintain. SWO patients
until then but it is being worked on.
