Wow, lately there has been a ton of spam,
I try and flag them when possible, but today there was so many on my last one I had to wait 2 minutes to flag it as spam due to this:

You have posted 3 times within 60 seconds. A spam block is now in effect on your account. You must wait at least 120 seconds before attempting to post again.

I kinda chuckled... I got a spamming warning due to flagging spam, I didn't post anything just flagged the spam..

    I almost considered posting up one of those myself due to the insanity they bring.

    Yeah, we're working on this problem. Unfortunately there's been a wave of brand new spammers with clean IP and e-mail addresses, so since they haven't been caught anywhere before, they won't get caught in our spam filters. We're working on ways to tighten that.
