Overview has several features for fighting spam. The term spam is used generically to refer to both wiki pages and emails that have malicious or promotional content. Measures to discourage spam include that:


No user content has hyperlinks
So spammers cannot make links to theirs sites and raise their search engine rankings
No user content is exposed to search engines for indexing until it has been around for 3 days
During this time the pages are scrutinized and spam is removed
Home pages are never exposed to search engines
