I disagree with “The open wiki is pretty much a thing of the past now already.” Yes, running an open wiki with only a small initial community of editors can leave you overrun with SPAM, but you can get it under control with a few tweaks of your MediaWiki installation: SpamBlacklist (using some of the big community-gathered blacklist), allowing only logged-in users to start new pages, and the odd RegEx expression.

In my experience, simply requiring javascript for a form submission will knock out 98% of spam.
