Some guy wanted to show how kewl he is, apparently - well, "hacking" a collaboratively edited page is no beg deal, is it. I took the liberty of refilling the index page with the content of revision done by Bilbo on 18:23, 24 October 2006, which seemed to be the latest legit edit. I believe the page should be reverted to that revision by someone with admin rights. -- Pavarr 15:27, 4 February 2007 (CET)

Thanks for the quick response to the vandalism. Unfortunately I don't think Mediawiki has an easy way for an admin to delete an entry from a page's history (if I'm wrong, let me know), so an admin's response would have been the same as yours. A quicker way to do this than copy+paste is to view the last good version using the history, click edit, note the warning "WARNING: You are editing an out-of-date revision...", and of course click Save. Thanks again! -- Bilbo 17:55, 5 February 2007 (CST)
PS. For what it's worth, admins will block spammers and vandals (I blocked this idiot). If the account is responsible for many changes, it may be used by a bot, and blocking the account could temporarily disable the bot. -- Bilbo 18:04, 5 February 2007 (CST)
