Taking on WikiSpam with Eaton

The first tangible results have come out of WikiSym 2005 already:

Peter Kaminski of Socialtext had the idea for a CGI wrapper which eventually - during the course of WikiSym 2005 - became Eaton - A Bouncer for WikiSpam and Blog Spam. Eric Kim describes Fighting WikiSpam: Eaton and Shared Blacklists. Sunir Shah prepared the WikiSpam Workshop at WikiSym, which gave an excellent overview of the state of the art tools and techniques for fighting spam.

I’m sure there will be a Wordpress plugin at some point that uses a shared blacklist to fight blog spam in the same way Eaton does.
