I like the wiki, but the spam is really depressing.
Anything I can do to help?

I'm just trying to find ways to stop it but so far nothing has helped, captcha on the account creation didn't stop it, even with me changing the user account creation to lock it down i can see accounts are still being created but i don't know how!

I recreated the home page at some point last week; I'd found that since it was last manually updated, it'd been spam-updated HUNDREDS of times.

Sad fucks, nobody wants your knock-off viagra - stop flogging it on car Wiki pages! :evil:
