Take a look at Your
template includes the link, as claimed. Seems it's gotten itself added to the
global blacklist; either have it taken off, or add it to the local whitelist.

Here is the problem. The SPAM had been hidden inside this 
template, almost invisibly, and had not been detected up to 
few minutes before the attempted save of above:
- either the site was not blacklisted,
- or expanded templates were not checked

Since the cause is clear now, this bug is no longer valid.

It's cached for a short time, to save multiple hits on Meta from all
thousand-odd wikis. :)

> - or expanded templates were not checked

They were.
