Hi,

(Sorry if the discussion if not the best place to post that, but didn't find any better place).

It seems the signup to the http://wiki.lesswrong.com/wiki/ is broken :

 Account creation from this IP address (10.254.182.117) has been blocked by Gwern.

10.254 ? Seems that the blocking was made to an internal IP (load-balancer ? proxy-cache ?) so blocking everyone... can anyone fix it ?

Thanks !

I believe Gwern just fixed it.

LW has been getting a ton of spammers creating accounts. I'm guessing that since few people use the wiki, they're acting liberally in order to prevent it.
