Have the framework to enable certain classes of data to be moderated
(regexp based on node update for example).
Then you can trivially require moderation for any edit that contains an
external URL ref. This would block the vast majority of spam that I've
seen on the OpenGuides so far, and would not be an unreasonable
inconvience to wiki users.
We already have the concept of admin users for node deletion, so simply
set a flag in the database that a node version needs moderation and
refrain from displaying such data on the public web site.
