Subject [PROPOSAL] Remove WikiAdmin email form
Date Thu, 18 Jul 2013 12:55:46 GMT
Today I woke up to find approximately 15 spam messages to the dev
list, all from the WikiAdmin form.  It looks like spammers have found
it.

The signal/noise ratio for this was never good to start with -- maybe
10 misdirected support questions for every legitimate wiki admin
question.  But now with the spam it is starting to become a burden on
list moderators.

I'm proposing we replace the form on the wiki with text that either
directs the user to send their admin questions to the dev list, or to
enter them into Bugzilla where we have a place for issues related to
project-owned infrastructure.

Alternatively, maybe there is a way to add a CAPTCHA to the form,
preferable one that is impossible to solve ;-)

Regards,

-Rob
