Dealing with spam:

A user with "bot" privilege can do the following:

http://wiki.zmanda.com/index.php?title=Special:Contributions&target=SPAM_USER_ID&bot=1

(SPAM_USER_ID is the id of the user vandalising the site)

Then click on all rollback buttons on above page.

This will remove the spam and get rid of annoying messages from "Recent changes" as well.

Reference for above: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:How_to_revert_a_page_to_an_earlier_version#Bot_rollback


Update:

Following is now installed on wiki.zmanda.com:

http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/SpamBlacklist_extension 

It is using latest wikimedia black list.

Let see how effective it is. If this breaks anything, please let us know: wiki-admin (at) zmanda.com.
