Ticket #1278 (closed defect: fixed)
Spam in Trac tickets and wiki

I have found several tickets and one wiki page containing spam. The tickets are:
1150 1151 1152 1153 1154 1155 1156 1157 1158 1192 1220 1255 1276 1277
The wiki page is "Patio Heater - To warm up your house".
They contain spam URLs, stealing search engine ranking (e.g. PageRank) from this site.
Closing or blanking (as has been done with some of the spam) is not adequate, as the links stay in the page/ticket history and will still be followed by e.g. search engines. They should instead be deleted. This can probably be done with TracAdmin. In addition, maybe a spam filter should be implemented: http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/SpamFilter
