    I'm good with occasional breaks in the wall, it's an inevitable event. The prior open floodgate was just insane at times.

    Hopefully, it's enough to frustrate at least some of the spammers into giving up on this forum as a target. There's no money, in hard manual work, for them.

    We're cracking down on it, and it appears to be working. Again, it's just been a few days, but it seems to be far, far more effective.

    I've noticed a considerable reduction. There are a few that still slip by, but it's tremendously less in volume.

    Most of the same I've noticed tends to go directly into the moderator queue -- making clean up easy.

    Puff, puff puff. Seams the spammers are trying new tactics to break through but I have been puffing fire at them.

    Some are getting through but most art getting caught up in the traps. I'm continuing to watch, and will be deploying some addition tactics. I just don't want to do anything that starts to become too annoying to users.

    It's been phenomenally better. Over the past week, I've maybe seen 5 to report.

    I think that you are doing a great job.
    For the odd one that does slip through I hope that I am helping by reporting any that I see.

    Just observing and reporting is the best option probably.
