While it is probably complete overkill for what you want, have you looked at
the HNP extension?

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:HNP

You can set per-namespace or even per-page rights for specific user groups.

Thanks Platonides for your reply. I think I did not make myself clear
enough. I have already protected the whole website to prevent editing. Now I
want to create one window through my user talk page (User_Talk:Admin) to
allow others to write to me as feedback.

I scanned the internet but I could only find solutions to do the reverse,
ie. all pages open to editing but some pages protected. My situation is
exactly the reverse. I just want only one page to be open to anonymous
editing (after I disabled all pages) as I don't have the resource to check
for vandalism.
