I have to disagree. Wordpress is everything but a Wiki and using it as one is 
nothing I would do.

A wiki doesn't need any anti-spam measures at all if only registered users can 
edit, registration is closed and users have to be added manually. At least 
Inkscape uses/used that approach and it works like a charm.

I guess everyone could edit the page? Doesn't matter though, Wordpress is fine 
for regular websites.
