Thanks for the mail Anniyka.

I'm sorry to disagree, and the reason is that guys trying to boost their
rankings on search engines using wikies need just what you proposal
gives them, the time. They count on that they will be removed and later
is better.

The best that we can do without breaking the glass is to give site
administrators the tool, our agreement written in policy, to remove such
content, and if user is persistent his/her account too.

In this case problem was that it was personal page, for any other I will
remove links without thinking a second. The way it is done tells that
this guy has experience with posting such rubbish to wikies. He posted
where it will hold the longest, until we discuss the matter.
