There is an option on 1.3.11 to limit the number of links on a single apge, or to
test the links against SURBL.
Reini posted this last October:
I've enabled now a spam blocklist checker, which is on by default.
It checks any edited content against all external links which are in
multi.surbl.org and bl.spamcop.net.
Note: It doesn't block user IP's or domains (which should be done on the
apache access level). It checks the content.
See http://phpwiki.org/WikiSpam and http://phpwiki.org/SpamBlocklist
I also added Dan's get_captcha_random_word() via
USE_CAPTCHA_RANDOM_WORD. Default: off. Thanks.
I have not been able to get 1.3.11 to install, so I can't provide any more details.

And the Calndar plugin. I have deleted the plugin files, and they still create the
orphaned pages that are only accessible by the RecentChanges page.
