Spam bot invasion

Yes it helps. Anyway, the best way against human spammers is that we have more people than them;) At least with more admins it really helps.

MultiplyByZer0 sees the wiki very frequently, we would react to spammers much faster if he were admin as well;)

Well, we just need to be patient. As much as I hate spammers, wiki will run even with spam inside. Wiki is not the twitter where everything should be immediately up-to-date.

I personally monitor Recent changes in my rss reader, so I see the invasion within couple hours. But we cannot expect admin reaction time to be much faster than a day or even week.

This is not the first spam wave (though the largest I remember) which we survived.

I may be the first one on wiki who sees the attack ;p It happens right after I edited an article. And if at that time we were to disable account creation immediately and take other actions to help, the attack won't happen at all.
