I just checked the wiki and looked at the 'recent updates' section ( I havent looked at it in a while and I wanted to see if there were any updates). It seems to being spammed like crazy by some chinese advertiser/spammer. Im not sure what there is to do about it.

Bring in the IP ban hammer and hope it doesn't happen again?
Can't you edit the updates provided you have permission?

Registering is required to edit pages but the Wiki's captcha for registering is pitiful. Also, it's possible the spammer is an actual human not a bot. (If so, good, he's just wasting his time). Thanks for letting me know Batman, I'll delete the spam
