Oh, regarding choosing between these two: If the second case
corresponds to the restrictions at gnomesupport.org, then we already
have Christian's data on how much wiki-spam that causes. We can
choose between them based on the acceptability (or unacceptability) of
that rate. I think whoever is most likely to spend the most time
moderating should make that judgement, and I'm guessing that would be
Christian since he's already in the habit of moderating
Also, the focus tends toward the setting of the restriction-level
since that's viewed as a free-variable, but I want to re-emphasize
that lowering the cost of the corrective action is *really* important.
Any wiki should be read-only until those mechanisms are well-greased.
