Thanks for notifying.  I think I could revert most os the vandalism
(at least searching for "cialis" doesn't return anything anymore).

Doesn't the wiki have RecentChanges (and perhaps email or rss to it)
so the more diligent wikignomes can see every edit and watch that
nothing odd gets in?
Reverts like that are supposed to be easy enough to combat vandalism
on their own in the classical wiki model. Robots of course tilt the
balance and then you'd need some kind of human authentication.

I appear to be temporarily using gmail's horrible interface. I
apologise for any failure in my part in trying to make it do the right
thing with post formatting.
