I am not sure if such action is appropriate to talk about in a public
forum or good for your back, but I digress...

PDX.pm uses kwiki only through pure, complete, everlasting,
unadulterated laziness. Please do not take that as an endorsement for
using kwiki. We will migrate off it when someone volunteers to migrate
us, i.e. just before the heat death of the universe. I think if no
migration script from kwiki to some other popular wiki exists, perhaps
we should just duct tape Ingy to a chair the next time we see him,
glue his eyes open, and make him write us one ;)

Just remember Keith: The only way to the win the wikispam game is to
not play at all.
