I recommend the ConfirmEdit plugin (which is also listed on the above
page) using only the 'addurl' and 'createaccount' triggers. This
requires the user to fill out a captha when adding new links to a page
or when creating a new account, while editing of regular content is not
affected. On a mediawiki page I administer this plugin was able to keep
out the >200 spam edits which were performed every day.
