Instead of blacklisting users or spammy content, we could switch to
explicitly whitelisting users who request access to the wiki. See:

    http://wiki.apache.org/general/OurWikiFarm#per_wiki_access_control_-_tighten_your_wiki_just_a_little.2C_benefit_just_a_lot

We've done that in a few other projects I'm involved in, and have
managed to eliminate all wiki spam with just a reasonably minor entry
barrier to new contributors.

BR,
