Bill's not talking about email spamming, its wiki spamming.  This new  
evil is spammers writing bots to find wikis and insert their  
advertisements into the pages.

In the past I've likened vandalizing wikis to kicking puppies.  Its not  
a challenge and people will think you're a jerk for doing it.   
Unfortunately some people will do anything for money.
