Just about any wiki that allows editing without login and/or editing
with a login that doesn't have to be pre-approved by the administrators,
will sooner or later be vandalized. It's just a matter of those
vandalbots finding the wiki. And usually they come back again later,
with an ever-decreasing interval. After a while, the wiki might be in
constant motion due to vandalbots. After you fix/revert one page, you
notice that two other pages have been vandalized while you were
reverting the previous page.. it's a neverending swamp, unfortunately.
