You could change it to r/o in the file system.

But I doubt that would help much, next day will come another spammer and 
spam all other pages.

Normally it says "immutable" for ro pages. Maybe there was a bug in the 
version you use.

Yes, quite some stuff in 1.2.2:
  * page ACLs
  * MoinMoin:SecurityPolicy has a content based spammer filter
