>Hey guys, I've been noticing a lot of new spam user accounts being created on the wiki, which is to say hundreds of them.  I'd be happy to help delete them if I had that sort of access, but it doesn't solve the problem of them being created in the first place.  It seems like email confirmation would go a long way to stemming the tide, and captcha even more so.  Email in particular IIRC is just an option you can turn on.  Captcha shouldn't be a great deal harder.  Again, it's been a while since I've done any wiki administration, but I think it was just a plugin and a service you sign up for.  Is there anybody who has access and can enable them?
