Ok, here's what I did:

1. disabled pythonspot as well
2. added note that we don't want spammers to fill the listings
   on that page
3. moved the entries of both pythonspot and pythonguru to the
   end of the list (reinstantiated the pythonguru listing which
   pythonspot had removed); removed duplicate pythonspot entries
   and only kept the pythonspot.com one around

If one of the two want to make edits, they can ask for change
requests on this list, but I don't think we should give them
editor rights again for the time being - at least not until we
get the feeling that they have learned the lesson.
