Thanks for this. Yes, we're hesitant about allowing general users
delete powers - not just that they may delete perfectly good packages,
but we'd have to write some UI to view 'deleted' packages and
'undelete' them. We have the compromise that administrators simply
view them all have this additional field in the package edit form.

I'm keen to for general users to nominate articles for deletion as you
suggest. Perhaps the easiest way to do this is to ask users to email
the admins for the instance? I'll create a ticket for this:
http://knowledgeforge.net/ckan/trac/ticket/283 so feel free to
continue the discussion here or on the ticket.

In the meantime, I've purged this particular spam package.
