Use images to block bots. Use an editing delay to slow down humans.
E.g. When editing a given page, store the IP address for x seconds (60?
10?), and block further editing of other pages until an editing hold for
that IP address has expired. Then delete the stored IP address.
Maybe use a cookie that expires after, say 60 seconds?
Annoying to legitimate users, though I suspect most people are not
trying to edit multiple pages one right after the other.
