The BOINC User Wiki is undergoing a spam attack. I am in the process of blocking 500+ accounts (manually) and removing their entries into the Wiki. Hopefully that the developers have a better (faster) way of doing this.

That these pages and the whole domain are so slow, is because of this attack (on the database). Sorry for that.
