??? ... not sure what you mean. They have been vandalising the
Cocoon wiki pages by changing our links to point to their websites.
Google loves our web pages because they have such good content.
Apache wiki front pages have many incoming references from other
pages - Google loves it more. Our Wiki pages have links to each
page's history - Google gets excited. Google users discover our
pages and accidently follow the links. The vandals win.

Yep, i have always had a problem with open wikis.

However, i do not think that Antonio is over-reacting.
I see his logic.
