On Thu, Jul 05, 2007 at 10:39:59AM -0700, we recorded a bogon-computron collision of the <scott at opentrac.org> flavor, containing:

The wiki was vandalized again today, and until it's clamped down it'll just
keep getting hit.

I think it's necessary to clamp down the registration process, at a minimum.
It should be possible even to disable the ability to create new logins, and
that would be better than nothing.

During the time that registrations are restricted, at least there would be
a useful place to *read* aprs information, whereas now we have nothing but
a place that has to be fixed every few days.

Could you do that?
