Well unfortunately I seem to remember doing that a while back. (I'll
check to make sure). I did notice that there are accounts showing up to
just post spam :-(. I have been going in once in a while and looking at
the recent changes page and deleting new pages/changes that are spam.

Maybe I can change it to approved only accounts can make changes.
I'll look into it.

I suppose like anything else nothing is perfect at keeping the spam away.
