Due to rampant spammer abuse of the Inkscape wiki, we've been forced to
make a change to its usage.
From now on, whenever you edit a page, you must also type in the word
'NOSPAM' into a new entry box at the bottom of the page. If you do not,
an error message will display; you can click back and add the NOSPAM and
This change will fake out the spammers, because their spambots won't
know to do this step, so will be blocked. Possibly the spammers will
catch on to this defense; if so, we'll invent new countermeasures.
Thanks go to Kees Cook for implementing this for us. :-)
I apologize for the inconvenience of doing this; I know it's a hassle,
but if it eliminates the hassle of having to revert pages and delete
spam in order to use the wiki, I think it will be worth the trade. If
not, and you have an idea for a better solution, please let me know.
