Yeah, I see your point. The problem was that each automated spam change had to
be manually undone. The latest unreleased version of MoinMoin has batch undo
features for just this reason, I'll see if I can install it onto haskell.org

Assuming I get it installed, I'll give batch-undo privileges to the most active
wiki users. Up till now Cale Gibbard, Thomas Jaeger, and I have done most of
the boring spam removal work.

I probably won't have time to do this before the weekend though.
