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.
Or, alternatively, look up the provided URLs in one of the spam
databases that tracks such things. Or perhaps start a Wiki-specific one
for use on lots of Wiki systems?
