Yes, it most probably is. In MoinMoin 1.2.4, the antispam code does not have a
timeout. That means that it waits until the main server
(http://moinmaster.wikiwikiweb.de/) answers with a list of all banned entries.
And because the main server is unstable in these days (problems with Apache),
every wiki notices the outages.

Workaround: disable antispam code.
Solution: get 1.3 with an improved antispam module. MoinMoin 1.3 will be
released in this month.

Kind regards,
