On MediaWiki, it's much easier to simply block an account from ever editing again than it is to actually delete the account. If you delete the account, there may be problems with the history of articles that account has edited.

Ugh, these stupid spam bots are getting on my nerves.  I just had to
undo a half dozen "edits" which were nothing more than deleting the
last 90% of each article.

I emailed Mike Sugarbaker (the "pwn3r and operator") but I don't know
if that's going to do anything.  The place is infested with bad
accounts that have been there for months if not years and he hasn't
ever acted to get rid of them before.

(OK, I'm done grumbling and complaining for now. Until it happens again.)
