Wiki Spam Attack at opencpn.org

Hi all ...

I just wanted to point out that the wiki at opencpn.org is under a massiv spam attack (user registration and comment spam).

I know this problem from the German site.
But there are some appropriate measures against ...!

I wonder why this keeps showing up as an unread message. I thought perhaps because no one has replied to it, so I'm testing that hypothesis.

Being wondering just that for the past 24 h...I think Netsurfer put a spell on this thread...

Yep, fgd3, you did it...

I went so far as to use my sessionstore.bak in place of sessionstore.js in Firefox profile but that doesn't cure it either.

Your reply seems to have fixed it. Funny though.
