That sounds like a very bad idea. It would hinder the community in
growing again. I think enabling OpenID logins would help people
like me to edit the wiki again. I don't remember if I have a login
already and I'm reluctant to create another login.
Are there decent anti-spam tools for MediaWiki? I know a few
community groups which are facing similar problems. It seems like
if you don't have the community critical mass of wikimedia, there's
nothing good available.
Just to be clear: captchas (and, even worse, physical ability tests
which aren't captchas but call themselves captchas) are not anti-spam
Hope that helps,
