The Secretaribot scripts
(https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Secretaribot ) has wruckened havoc
and now removed the hundreds of throwaway spammer accounts and spam
pages.

There are still a few trickling in, but with the addition of a simple
captcha on the user registration page[*], I think we've staunched the
flood.

Interesting Noisebridge Wiki stats from
https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Special:Statistics

We've just hit 4 million hits on the front page. We have 641
non-spammy (I think) users, and 2,685 pages. We have 35 users active
in the last week. Top ten pages:

Noisebridge	4,079,184
Category:Events	35,765
Noisebridge Vision	24,772
Getting Here	16,794
Science For Juggalos	16,750
Five Minutes of Fame	15,596
Quotes	15,062
Resources	12,890
People	12,772
Machine Learning	11,383

That is all!

to write a Noisebridgian addition to the

free.)
