if the main intent for the spam poster to be recognized by search engines, we could define a specification 'a-la robots.txt' that only returns sub parts of web pages to search engines robots. Thus, for example, anonymous comment would automatically be not returned to the search engine, and it would defeat most of the spammer intent.
Of course, then we don't have legitimate anonymous content recorded by the search engine. But that could be a feature, not a limitation :)
