I have been trying to help clean up the Wiki, and have run into an issue with the "Akismet" spam protection tool. It typically allows you to make one update then blocks the next update attempt. Once blocked, you have to use another host to make contributions. Others have also had this issue, please note this e-mail to the users group

The second thread you posted above (and other ones on the developers and users' lists) explain how to be whitelisted if this is biting you. The Akismet tests are having an enormous positive benefit, so we are tolerating the odd false-negative and using whitelisting to work around that at the moment.

Thanks for continuing to persist, though. I appreciate it must be very frustrating at times.
