Good to know, thanks.

We got a couple of spam events this morning too, this time in the wiki. 
To deal with this, I have temporarily reduced the permissions for the 
general authenticated group of users and added all accounts to an 
additional group that provides the edit and create permissions.

I am not advocating at this point that this should become our default 
policy and, unless this is actually seen as a better policy, I expect to 
return edit and create permissions to all authenticated users in the 
near future. One consequence of leaving the permissions in this state is 
that a new registration will also need to ask for the edit permissions 
to be added to their account.
