Anonymous user may add such spam - but I don't think registered user will do
that, and the admins can block him forever easily.

You can also disable the spam filter for admins - why should an admin insert spam?
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-02-17 19:30:04 UTC
Spambots routinely register accounts on wikis for the sole purpose of spamming.

Disabling it for admins would be unhelpful, as that would effectively lock an 
affected page to admin-only editing.
