A couple of weeks back, when talking about wiki spam issues with a friend,
it was asked why there seems to be such a lenient approach to wikispam
within openguides, and why we're ignoring solutions that are already
One such solution being Spamassassin. I've never used it before (I've
never had a need, I don't get spam), but why can't we run every edit
through a customised spamassassin build, and reject/pend for approval of
the admins any edits that score higher than say, 5?
I don't know how easy this would be, but it does seem to be an ideal
solution that saves reinventing the wheel.
