CFD-Wiki was recently attacked by a spam-bot that registered thousands of users and wrote thousands of spam pages. I have started to clean out the mess, but I still haven't finished. If this very aggresive spam-bot comes back we will have to install better spam fighting capabilities in the Wiki again. Jonas had this several years ago, but removed it when it wasn't needed any more.

Now all the automatically registered spam-users have been blocked and all pages they created have been deleted. I hope that this bot doesn't come back because it was no fun.
