As most of us may alright know, the FreeSWITCH wiki has been abused
and attacked by spammers, as seen here:

Some FreeSWITCH users have been deleting and blocking these spammers,
but they are increasing their spamming attacks.

I went into #mediawiki in freenode and asked them if there is any
solution to this and this is what they suggest:

15:18 < bawolff> !spam | diegoviola
15:18 < mw-bot> diegoviola: For information about combating and
handling spam in MediaWiki, see
<http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Combating_spam> and

I've seen most wikis who have implemented this solution and they no
longer get any spamming after applying said solution. If somebody here
have administration access to http://wiki.freeswitch.org/ I offer my
help to apply this solution.
