no, kwiki's missing an intuitive UI in this area. IIRC you delete a
page by deleting all content and hitting "save."

there are anti-spam plugins for kwiki, but no more perfect than any
other such system (witness all the spam on http://kwiki.org/).
logins are the surest way, but they are antithetical to wikiness.
IMHO the spam problem would have to be pretty bad to require logins.
