[Bioperl-l] bioperl wiki spam

All,

We have been getting inundated on the wiki with spam lately.  In order to get on top of this, I'm thinking about having the wiki set up so wiki admins approve new user accounts, using the ConfirmAccount plugin:

I wanted to get everyone's opinion on this prior to enforcing it.  The queue is pretty configurable, and one can set this to auto-delete old requests.  

Any thoughts?
