Your web team really, really hates Spam. Wikis, unfortunately, are vulnerable to spammers depositing links to web pages whose Google rank they are trying to raise.

This wiki uses a variety of anti-spam measures.

One is participation in Project Honey Pot. Our honeypot is here, but don't click this link. Do not follow that link. (It's necessary to have a link somewhere, sorry.)

If you do follow that link by accident, nothing bad will happen. If a Spammer's automated email collection software follows that link, and then sends spam to the email addresses it will find, that spammer is added to a database that helps to feed the Anti-spam filters around the world.
