I respectfully disagree.

We ask that people subscribe to a mailing list before mailing to it,
usually, and in this case, the amount of work which needs doing to keep
automated spam at bay in the wiki is big. Captchas would alleviate the
problem, but would not accomplish the second part of my goal - knowing
who wrote what in the wiki in the history.
