I don't recall if deleting pages requires special privileges. I think it 
does. If so, anyone who has that privilege is trusted to exercise it 
appropriately. Don't worry about getting a consensus about whether 
something is spam: if you know it when you see it, just kill it.

A borderline case would be someone who uses their user profile to 
promote their web development services. I would be more lenient for that 
sort of thing from an active contributor than from someone whose only 
contribution is their profile page.

This is not a borderline case.
