This has been noticed before. Bogus accounts get created all the time, but you have to have permission to actually contribute. Those bogus accounts therefore do not harm the system, apart from take up database space.

Francois (and I believe some other senior developers) have the power to grant you write rights if you would like to contribute to the Wiki :)

Hello,

I've looked something up in the wiki today and routinely (don't do much
ICS related work currently so routinely is months...) I look at the list
of latest changes to see how wiki progresses. (Has anybody not yet
ontributed? ;-) )

Now I saw that in the last few days>  500 bogus user accounts with
seemingly random names have been created. Anybody noticed this already?
Does this do any harm? Are there any counter measures? (e.g. a log with
the IP of those creators and if it's the same IP maybe it can be traced
and at least a provide get informed)

This is for this time, but I'll most probably return with another thread
about TSmtpCli tonight...

Greetings

Markus
