Nice one.  I tried clicking around on the wiki as quickly as I could,
and it didn't seem to block me :)

It feels more responsive, compared to when I was using it yesterday.
Saving pages  seems to be especially faster than before at the moment.

Do you consider the cases where multiple people use one ip?  Like at
conferences, companies, and from large isps that use proxies (eg AOL)?
 It sounds like you have.

The robot trap Laura mentioned sounds like a good idea too - but maybe
not needed now that you've done this.
