Any chance it has something to do with what Batalov suggested?

Or, perhaps, because the wiki wasn't terribly well locked down someone did a DOS on it (doesn't always have to involve a lot of net traffic; a fork bomb aka rabbit virus or "wabbit" is a classic example)?

Stepping back, is there any reason we're suggesting we run our own wiki, or move the *actual* *content* anywhere other than Wikipedia (where they have a team worried about this kind of thing)?
