This mirrors the symptoms of other sourceware-hosted moinmoin wikis
that had been overrun with spam users.  We cleaned a bunch of them off
of glibc the other day, basically removing all but the
trusted-editors, and things are much faster.  (Legitimate non-editor
users can create new users, or email to restore their purged info.)

Are y'all interested in the same treatment for the gcc wiki?
