Due to continued attacks by automated spam bots, I’ve had to take the Encyclopaedia Brythenica off-line.  The normal MediaWiki measures and Captcha system are not sufficient to prevent the commercial postings and I am not in a position to manually administrate the wiki at this time.  My thanks to those individuals who attempted to mitigate the spam.

As time and opportunity allows, I may investigate options to correct the problem, but for the moment, I believe this is the best solution to prevent further corruption of the data in the wiki.  Thank for your understanding.
