Yes, back before we locked down the moinmoin wikis with EditorGroup
type ACLs, they were ALL inundated by spam, including the heavily used
ones too like gcc.

... or can leave them as is, as long as there is no local link into
the spam pages, people here won't be any wiser.  Perhaps someone can
figure out a way of despamming them at some point - doing it by hand
is just too big a job.
