Can you elaborate on the level of inconvenience this limitation will 
add? Is this one of those review-accounts-before-creation kinds of 
things or review-posts-before-accepting kinds of things? Are there other 
options for review? I would be willing to volunteer time to assist if 
the group collectively decides to follow this idea.

As far as the question posed goes, it would seem to me that the ratio of 
spam to/valuable content is rather high. The unfortunate reality is that 
there are enough Bad Guys on the Internet that ruin things for everyone 
and most public forums, wikis and blogs have some form of moderation to 
combat this. As long as adding moderation doesn't make it *difficult* to 
contribute, I feel that users would understand.

I administer some MediaWiki sites, but no MoinMoin powered wiki's. What 
is the preferred method of moderation? Something built-in or an extension?
