Subject [heads-up] wiki abuse: your advice please
Date Fri, 14 Mar 2003 13:46:51 GMT

while briefly checking the Wiki, I was confronted with some apparent 
abuse: people uploading attachments which don't have much to do with 
Cocoon (possibly just making benefit of the bandwidth we are 
sponsoring), people playing around on certain non-Sandbox pages, even to 
the extreme of erasing the Main page, and various other not-so-funny 
things. I'm very happy to see some people go in and correct, and the new 
'restore latest version' feature of JSPWiki sure helps with this.

Nevertheless, I'm annoyed a bit by the lack of adult behaviour by some 
IP addresses, and was wondering whether (and how) I should block them. I 
know this sounds pretty harsh, and that's why I'm polling you guys to 
see what you would think would be a fair policy.

I know, thanks to the Power Of Wiki, everybody can come in and make the 
Wiki a self-healing thing, but still I'm worried that someone will come 
and add image links to some nasty p0rn images, and that this will scare 
off our regular community.

Your thoughts, please: what kind of policy would you come up with, or 
are willing to live up to?
