I think the "captcha" plug-in would be the best option, but I don't know any PHP either. What is your SourceForge user name, so I can add you as a developer?

I vaguely remember that I looked at that wiki software when I created the wiki, but the main problem was that it uses files to store data, which is not feasible on SourceForge. Any wiki that we use needs to store data in a MySQL database.

Is it something we could put on pythonce.sourceforge.net ?
