Yes, but that will cut down on contributing users; the threshold of  
participation goes way up.  Which I don't really like.

Well, the current statistics is

grey:~/Projects/JSPWiki> cat /var/log/jspwiki/jspwikispam.log* | grep  
ACCEPTED | wc -l
grey:~/Projects/JSPWiki> cat /var/log/jspwiki/jspwikispam.log* | grep  
REJECTED | wc -l

So the spamfilter seems to be mostly working :-)
