Spam, spam, spam, china, and spam

Got tired of the Chinese Wikispam and put the entire .cn -domain under a moratorium: you can no longer post links on JSPWiki to China. If the situation persists, I will add the entire .cn -domain to an edit blacklist as well.

If *all* spam comes from China, and *very few* positive contributions, I think it's time to throw the very little baby out with a lot bathwater. I (and the people who donate their time to do WikiGardening) have better things to do than to clean a dozen pages every single morning.

*plop*

(1) Yes, I know that Finns don't celebrate the US Thanksgiving, but knowing Janne, he won't hesitate to lift a scotch in a toast to us :-)

Thanks, Foster! Though I have no idea when Thanksgiving is :)

The patch is really simple, just added '\.cn' to the ~SpamFilterWordList.
