    Because it's becoming urgent:
    http://wiki.blackwatchmen.com/index.php/Special:RecentChanges

    As it's a mediawiki, there are multiple possibilites to ban these bots, a few of them are:
    1. Only users with confirmed emails can create/edit pages.
    2. ReCAPTCHA widget (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ConfirmEdit#ReCaptcha). Captcha displayed on the actions: a) 'edit' - triggered on every attempted page save b) 'create' - triggered on page creation c) 'addurl' - triggered on a page save that would add one or more URLs to the page d) 'createaccount' - triggered on creation of a new account
    3. Proxy blocker : http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Anti-spam_features#Proxy_blocker
    4. SpamBlacklist : http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SpamBlacklist
    Thanks a lot :)

    Help is coming! Fred is now back from the comiccon and his first task is to deploy a captcha on the Wiki and clean up the bots mess. We shall take back the control of our wiki shortly!
