Would you file a bug against ikiwiki?

Because I've had my experiences with open wikis and it doesn't take
long until spammers make them unusable.
http://phd.martin-krafft.net/wiki was open from at around the time
ikiwiki came out until about a year later; it was never advertised.
According to the logs, I still get >10'000 hits/day from spammers
POSTing directly to the CGI with new page requests.
