This kind of wiki spam is quite widespread recently. This is why I have 
made the antispam extension, see MoinMoin:AntiSpamGlobalSolution .

antispam is included in moin 1.2.4, but it should also work with 1.2.x.

Just delete his user account. Or even better: disable it, so he can't 
create a new one with that name.

This is what antispam.py does.

Doesn't really help.
