Spam cleanup

Hi Angus, noticed some very high load on the server - this wiki was being hammered with spambots. Many thousands of accounts. It looks like the st-andrews.ac.uk e-mail domain restriction had stopped working due to a MediaWiki upgrade - I've modified the extension to work with modern MediaWiki versions (although it needs a little tidying up). I also ran various maintenance scripts to remove all the spammers and spam pages. Hopefully nothing's broken or missing - it all seemed to be from the past week or so.
