On creating a new Wiki: I hear you. I'm constantly fighting Wiki-creep
with some of my other communities and clients. Creating new Wikis is
often knee-jerk, and knee-jerk is usually not the best thing.
There's a tradeoff between starting with a blank slate and the need to
re-establish a community and a set of norms. My gut tells me that a
