     If I recall correctly, this was a "feature" that came with an
ikiwiki update and was unplanned.  Being unplanned, it took a while
to figure out what was going on and to put a stop to it.  It is
painfully obvious that anonymous unmoderated postings on the modern
Internet is unworkable.  I consider it irresponsible of the ikiwiki
developers to have enabled such a feature by default.
