Good question, I'll ask on the infra list whether this is possible.

Not sure whether there is a way to prevent this.  We could add tinyurl
ot the BadContent list but I guess there are too many URL shortening

Still, in Gump's case there only are very few people who ever edit the
Wiki so the ContributorGroup setup would be a good fit IMHO.
