SmiteSpam (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SmiteSpam) is a new
extension that helps wiki admins identify and delete spam pages (and block
their creators).

For wikis that are overrun with spam, this extension could reduce the
enormous amount of time required (to manually find and delete spam pages
and then block their creators) from the hours or days it normally takes, to
just minutes!

The page on mediawiki.org linked above has setup and configuration details.
Feedback on the talk page is very welcome. The Phabricator project for this
extension is at

The extension was developed by me as a GSoC project this summer, mentored
by Yaron Koren and Jan Luca.
