ok, so every once in a while i remove all the spam that is added to the wiki but as expected, it comes back. yesterday, i cleaned all the articles and accidently clicking the wiki page link i saw the main page was spammed, then i checked the recent changes log and everything i changed was spammed! there is a simple scripting solution but i dont have access to it.

Cary, wtf are you?!

I noticed a whole bunch of junk pages in there a few months ago. Thanks for trying to maintain it, all that garbage is annoying.

Where? I noticed someone (or something) created a spam page for some website (s*digital), but that was the only junk I saw in there.
