I REALLY don’t want to sound like a broken recorder, or a spam bot, but as long as this problem is there, no new user can edit the wiki. This is troublesome. I know that having spam bots is not better, but...

It seems like we have three options:

1. Proceed as is without user registration -- this seems like a bad option.

2. Uninstall the extension and look elsewhere for a spambot fix. This seems a better option, but it would mean that spambots would be able to register again while we were waiting. Not sure how much of a difference that would make.

3. Attempt to modify the extension's SQL to get it to work. My first suggestion here (Ok, second, since my first suggestion didn't work) would be to try removing the line that's failing. If I had access to phpMyAdmin or some other SQL manager for the site, I would be willing to try to undertake this. As it is, I can only make suggestions and wait for the results.
