[Moin-user] Sneaky spam

[My first attempt to send this email bounced, guess why....]

I'm not a particularly sophisticated anti-spam activist, but I'm curious 
how the following happens:  someone has managed to sneak in the same 
(very obvious) spam sequence (v**gr*, dioxyexpialadocious or whatever 
they're trying to sell) onto 2 pages, twice this week.  The curious 
thing is that, despite being subscribed to all pages and including 
trivial changes in my subscriptions, I have not received any 
notification of the changes.

The spam also does not seem directed at exclusively at Moin, since it 
includes <div> </div> links.

I have now activated the
   from MoinMoin.util.antispam import SecurityPolicy
which was deactivated due to errors in a previous version.

But how were the spammers able to edit the wiki without me finding out?
