I'm not surprised that spam is rare but has been steadily rising, however the oscillations of vandalism are more complex and interesting. Are we seeing a pattern of rising vandalsim interrupted by major antivandalism initiatives such as the edit filter iprovements? If so it would be interesting to know if the underlying trend of vandalsim correlated with total readership or with adolescent readership, and whether spam was indeed increasing with readership.

Praise? ha ha? I've been wiki editor for almost 18 months and created over 100 pages of what I consider high-quality (must be some good since no one's attempted to delete them), praise is VERY last thing editors get out here. Mainly what you get (when the prima donna editors aren't picking and carping), is IGNORED. No one seems to care one way or the other what good you are doing and after 18 months, I still really have no clue how well my work is accepted. Additionally, no one has ever attempted any kind of mentoring and lastly, my pages have never been rated.
