My wiki's always had lots of spam. Mostly links to porn and viagra sites. You block what you can, revert the rest, and curse the wankers who write those bots for financial gain.

Lately though, I've been getting edits from bots that just put a single nonsense word a the top of the page. Words like "rellachizela" or "getsit" or "olodaracelt" with no link and no other text. I mean. I can't even see what the point of that is. Why on earth would you do that? Even the robots have gone insane.
