Wiki spam criteria -- how do I fix items marked as spam that aren'?

There are multiple links in the Wiki that are displayed as:

spam://url.to-legit-site-here.com

that I don’t believe are spam. The URL, when corrected, seems to be
legitimate. I’ve been rolling back defiled pages when I come across
them, but I’ve yet figured out a way to get the “spam” tag removed from
the page. An example is on the contributions page, under “extensions”.

Look at: statdump/statcrond

No matter how I enter the link the thing is still gets labeled as "Spam"
upon display. What’s the trick to this?

The way it works is that the wiki has a whitelist of URLs; if your URL
isn’t on the whitelist, it’ll show up as spam://… no matter how hard
you try. Only the wiki admins can alter the whitelist.

Best method might be to send a notes to this mailing list with a subject like:

[WIKI ADMIN] Please whitelist http://…

… and see if it catches the eye of an admin. =]

Meanwhile, I added the URLs from the Extensions and Contributions
pages to the whitelist.

Cheers!
