We should start to protect pages or block anonymous users from being able to edit. Some of them are lowlife spammers that should be shot without trial --Mr.Mouse

Actually, I've fixed it. Now, only logged in users can edit pages. Note, anonymous users, that this is not a way to discourage you to help out by forcing you to register, it's a way of preventing spammers or spambots to have free access. We hope you understand. --Mr.Mouse

Thanks for disabling anonymous posting - that should hopefully make a difference. It got really annoying - I think I blocked about 25-30 people in 2 days! lets hope never again.
