I've been thinking about next countermeasures for wiki pages. Can I ask 
some general questions -

Does he/she post links, ie pagerank spam ? Or is it just random garbage ?

Does he post as anonymous, or as a member ? Does he create multiple new 
accounts ?

Does he use multiple IP addresses ? Can you tell how many real people 
are actually doing this ?
