Well, immediately I would see it replacing my personal wiki on AFFS -
the newsletter stuff can move, as can the various other docs (the the
Flash one). I think there is some call for this kind of function; it's
been useful for Expos.
Wikispam - dunno. Interestingly, my wiki is fairly public (well, Google
knows about it, and it's been mentioned on public lists before) and has
never seen *any* spam whatsoever. I have no doubt that if it is more
prominent it would attract more attention, and it wouldn't be great to
have a username/password combo to access it. Fundamentally, of course,
there's nothing you can really do about it though :/
