Hi Thomas!
Thanks for your reply. Accordingly I chose option a) and removed

Still the described problem activating antispam remains. I think it may
be good to use it (additionally to TextChas). Any idea how to activate it?

TextChas seems to work. Thanks!

I discovered that activating antispam in wikiconfig.py has no effect and also I could write random nonsense text into the configuration file with no effect to MoinMoin. The file and the symbolic link both can be read by every user. So I don't understand why it has no effect...
