Are you looking to gain something in addition to its familiarity via

We do have two pages open to the public - account creation and the piggy
bank demo page. I installed a content filter that's kept the page free
of spam for the past twenty days. It's a blacklist, but it is kept up
to date by the community on a fairly regular basis, and you can add to a
local appendix yourself.

Perhaps we can open up the whole wiki for a bit while keeping the
blacklist pages locked down and see how it goes.
