It's one of the good/bad things about Wiki's... I don't know about 
Kwiki, but I know that some allow you to disallow changes by people "not 
a member of a group" (like on TWiki, I can say "Only people who are 
members of (say) RTUsers can edit this page")--granted, it's a bit more 
work on your end, but less work than, say, having to clean up all those 
wiki pages when spammers decide to play.


"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary 
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
