Oh, thanks for the notice.  Took a look and saw what you mean.  I
was worried about what to do if they deleted content in addition to
adding their spam, but it seems easy to go to the bottom of the
affected page, click on View Other Revisions, click View on one
of the legitimate revisions, go down to the bottom to Edit, and
save that page over the current one.
