Yeah... so...
I was browsing the V-tas homepage and noticed that someone inserted an advertisement for some random telemarketing company underneath the articles links.

Somebody should definitely do something about that.

Nice catch. I managed to figure out what my username/password were for the wiki, and so I've hit "Undo" to revert it back to Koujiryuu's last edit.

Mastery does not occur when you've performed a feat once or twice. Instead, it comes after years of training, when you realize that you no longer notice when you're performing a feat which used to require so much effort. Even walking takes years of training for a human: why not everything else?

Since it's a wiki, everyone can do something about that, since everyone is allowed to edit it.  We would have spam cleared off of there more quickly if more members kept an eye on the "recent changes" page on the wiki.

But then I can't take perverse pleasure in delegating minor inconvenient tasks to other people who are under no obligation to carry them out.
Where's the fun in that?
