Why Is There So Much Spam In Our Wiki?

I know this has been brought up before, but I believe that it's frustrating enough to deserve being brought up again. Why is the wiki so spam-ridden?

Every time I go to look at it, at least 75% of the things I click on are spam or "DeletedPage: This page was WikiSpam. "

Seriously, If nobody's going to put in the effort to keep the wiki spam-free, why even bother to have it, especially now that we have a FAQ?

Mefi Wiki trashed by spam

It seems that the Metafilter Wiki @ http://www.mssv.net/wiki.cgi was taken over by Xanax online, which promptly trashed the whole place, the shitheads

MeFis of Avalon

And lo, when the spammers did rear their ugly heads, the valiant Sir RichardP did smite them. Mighty was his sword, and thus was the Kingdom of Wiki spared the ugly wrath of pr0n.

(where's the "accolades" category?)

the metafilter wiki has been spammed by an online casino site

it looks as though the metafilter wiki has been spammed pretty badly by an online casino site, with several pages of info replaced with their url and some gibberish. i've emailed adrian but wonder if anyone else besides him might have a back up copy of the site.
