I'll take care of it. I have backups of the entire site. I've banned the IP
and will also be banning the particular link content so they can't spam
anymore. I didn't check, but I suspect the machine is a zombie since there
are actually multiple ips involved in the attack. Some of the Wiki spammers
have many machines to use b/c Wiki's have had IP banning for ages.
