Any other pointers are really appreciated.
Could you please try out the extension I'm working on:
It will mass delete pages created by non-whitelisted users, block their
IP addresses, and, if you have UserMerge installed, it will merge their
account into the "Spammer" user.
Let me know if you try it or if you have trouble with it.
I already tried to download & install it, but all I got was an empty
directory. I'm not comfortable with downloading the separate files from
the git hub but I will try it. The extension distributor does not send
the complete series of files, just the empty directory.
Well that was a bust; it inserted a copy of the git hub page into my
main page and into the top of the Special:Pages page also I noticed the
whitelist.txt was an HTML page that seemed to be a form of some kind. At
any rate I'll try it out when its a bit farther along.
Now about scripy--ban.php--
