Do you see a way to gracefully handle the non-Javascript case in your spam 
blocking code? Some people (such as blind users) use browsers without any 
Javascript support. If the KDE wikis are inaccessible to these users, then we 
would need to move accessibility-related content to a different location.

It once happened to me that my comments on a blog were silently dropped 
because the spam block developer thought that Konqueror's browser agent string 
is only used by spam bots. It is important that our own site configuration 
does not lead to similar frustrating effects, especially since the people 
using our browser are more linkly to deactictivate Javascript for security 
reasons (and because some of the old Konqueror versions are less crash-prone 
with deactivated Javascript).
