I implemented Justas's fix. It's a hack, and bruteforcing a solution, but it's better than the spam attacks we've been having. I don't love the WAY it works, but I love THAT it works. That said, the faux italics don't fix the old talk page, so I've moved that old content to it's own page. It was getting long anyway.


Edit- BTW: Justas, Thanks.

Hey, can you unprotect the Main Page now? :P

BTW, I think you can add other substrings to improve the spam blocker.

Yeap. And it seems the modified index.php has been overwritten with an upgrade here. Anyhoo, I've added some extra substrings to my blocker as well, which now looks like this:

if (strpos($_POST['wpTextbox1'], 'style="overflow:') === FALSE
