The page Main.WikiSandbox coming with the devault installation has the same  
permissions as the Main group (and most often as the wiki). If you have an  
edit password on the wiki like you mentioned, check the individual  
permissions on the spammed page(s) and/or groups. As StefCT suggested, there  
is an automatically generated list in the page SiteAdmin.AuthList.

You can enable automatic downloading of blocklists from pmwiki.org and  
moinmo.in, check the documentation for $EnableBlocklist = 10;

Also, the SpamFilters recipe may be of some use:


Good luck,
