We have fewer editors (as in those who will look at changes and make a 
decision as to whether the changes are valid or spam) would be my 
initial suggestion, but I really don't know.

I can understand that argument, but as most of the info on maemo.org is 
very specific to the Maemo devices, and I'm assuming that most people 
who are interested and engaged with Maemo (and therefore potentially 
knowledgeable enough to make alterations to a page) will have logins.
