I would recommend that anyone setting up a Wiki to secure it for users,
and to have some out-of-band initial authorisation mechansism.
Wiki's have become a dumping place for spammers to put thier
advertisements. I have seen where spammers can complete the email
verification of users, even.
Be wary when setting up a publicly accessible resource.
