0. User Fgfggfgf has been blocked. Generally speaking, spam from IP
address should only be blocked for a limited time (I've been using 1
year). For user accounts, the ban is permanent.
1. According to this:
This user has only made 2 edits, and those have already been reverted.
2. It would help if I checked the website more often. Been busy lately.
Up until now, I have been the only one with sysop status, so I've been
the only one who can block users.

But this has changed! I have granted sysop status to Markm and Kevin
Reid! Use this power wisely!

I am assuming that the usual suspects on this mailing list have indeed
signed up for the wiki with their own names. If this is not the case,
now would be a good time to let me know. :-)
Martin: if you would also like sysop status, let me know.
