I agree.  The signal to noise ratio needs to be kept to a minimum, 
especially on things people might use for reference like a wiki.  
For example, me.  I'll be using it alot I would bet.  Though I've used 
Pov for years, I still need all the help I can get.  Especially with 
lighting.  Hint, hint.

At any rate, passwords do help to keep down the riff-raff to some extent 
and has been mentioned, Firefox will help to minimize the trouble.  IE 
will do this as well.

As a potential user, I'd appreciate it.
