Does anyone know, if there is something like a "confirm Your data"
module available. If nagging human users why not do something useful?

I found out that the blacklist IP setting only works when you unregistered users edit pages. However, this is disabled in our wiki.

The following should be effective at the moment:

- Unregistered users cannot edit pages

- Registration involves solving a mathematical question (Captcha); if needed, it can be enhanced to be a "read the above two words" captcha (recaptcha)

- Registration also involves confirming e-mail accounts

- Some words and HTML techniques are blacklisted, and editing IPs are scanned on blacklists

I hope this helps in reducing the spam. Please let me know about the results, so we can see where there is room for improvement. :)
