Maybe it would be a good idea to semi-protect articles that have been
"doctored".  That way, the articles can still be updated etc. with
greatly reduced chances of doctoring.  We will, of course, end up
playing whack-a-mole with trying to block any accounts they do
create... although autoblocking helps.  Of course, someone else
probably thought of this already...
