So would someone who DOES have an account please edit the login page to
put a mailto link there to allow users to at least know that the UI on
that page isn't as described in the error you get when you try to create
an account the way the page says to do so?  It's guaranteed to be an FAQ
which will bother everyone more than the time it would take to fix it on
the page.

yes. Creating users who can edit the pages is going to pass through
so we don't have people randomly dropping in and trashing the pages.
9 wiki had a terrible time with this until they locked things down.
once in a while all the Plan 9 wiki would end up with links to porn
