One am one of them - please don't :)
I am dealing with Wikis for many years. These human spammers always
went away so far after a period. The overhead to manually delete a page
from time to time is much less than confirming manually new users (which
is also a non-incentive since they cannot start to hack the Wiki right
away...). I don't mind to continue to delete those spam pages manually.
