A spelling fix on "Enigma".

Pierre's point is a good one--if someone complained to his ISP,
their investigation would not see the purged history (though as
I said, I can produce them from backups if needed).  I don't know
of any AUPs up-to-date enough to cover wiki vandalism.  Maybe a
general "posting obscene content" or something might cover it.

If someone did complain to Shaw cable, and they respond to you
asking for evidence, I'll be happy to provide it.  In fact, I'll
bet they would generally expect such material to have been
removed, and would request information from logs and backups.
