In a different thread, I said that some of my users were "fickle", 
but finicky or shy or "just plain goofy" may be a better description. 
It appears that some users try a single edit and (for reasons 
unknown) decide that this wiki thing is too complicated. Or they post 
a question on an infrequently hit field and never come back looking 
for the answer.

Several of the fields are used for the same client, with different 
(but overlapping) user groups. Someone posts something on one field, 
and then decides that another field is a better choice, never 
returning to the original. (I am thinking of combining the fields and 
making use of authuser groups instead.)

I have given up trying to fathom the thought processes behind these behaviours.

This would probably work quite well, because I have a tireless 
spammer beating his head against the Blocklist wall on my one open 
field. He can be my cron job. How do I set this up in farmconfig.php?
