Spam in RDFa wiki

Sergey Chernyshev-2
Guys,

I noticed some spam messages were posted to RDFa wiki - I reverted edits from this guy:

But can't delete new pages created by these two:

Need someone from admin group to come and delete pages + ban.

Thank you,

        Sergey

Hi Sergey,

I'm cc'ing Nathan Kinkade who can handle those rollbacks/blocks.

Thanks for paying attention to that.

Nathan

http://rdfa.info/wiki/Special:Contributions/Benhurtisson is another spammer - quite prolific.

Unfortunately, these are already rergistered users - it's probably worth doing something like enabling CAPTCHA for changes with links, but I don't know how to do that.

I don't know any better way of handling that. Maybe using Wordpress's anti-spam service for triggering CAPTCHA or notifying Bureaucrats, but this requires a new extension - I don't think it exists yet..

Sergey,

I deleted the pages created by Louisuuitt and Sebaksj123 and also
blocked them and the user Bozozo.  This past Friday I blocked user
PeterWarner1 at the request of Ben, and it looks like someone has
reverted the changes from that user as well.

If you guys would like for me to install some other spam-fighting
extensions just let me know.

Best,

Nathan (Kinkade)
