MoinMoin isn't able to do that without patching the code (which I don't
really want to/can do) - that idea had crossed my mind, yes.

That's why I'm opting for an editorial team, possibly in several time
zones, so the load can be spread.

My favourite still is: Create a user, send us a mail (in which you have
to agree to putting your content under the CC license anyway) and then
one of the editorial team puts your accountname into the EditGroup. 

Captchas are broken already, those don't keep spammers away anymore.
