That's disappointing. I removed half-a-dozen spam attachments from the home page about two weeks ago. I hoped they wouldn't come back...

Sometimes it only takes a few minutes for the _same_ attachments to be uploaded again. As they're always the same we should probably be able to block them until we've got a better Wiki.

I patched the Wiki to require a login to upload attachments to the home page. Hopefully this will hold them off until we upgrade to MediaWiki.

Ah yes, MediaWiki would be much better. Would certainly look better anyway :)

Little success: the attachments were back today. Removing the link to the attachment page isn't enough :-/.
