SPAAAAAM

It's gotten bad the last few days and now they're even spamming active threads in the middle of the US day. Cris, if you think you gotta turn off automatic approval of new accounts for a little while until this BS dies back down I wouldn't object.

This has been the cycle of spam for the past 13 years of the site. There are a lot of people who do have the ability to remove spam, so it normally gets removed pretty quickly except at odd hours. Given the volume of new accounts, it would take a lot of time for me to approve them manually. If you or anyone else would like the ability to remove spam, just let me know and I'll add you. I wish there were some magic way to stop it, but at least the removal method here is pretty painless.

NO ... leave the human SPAM killers active on SLU.

I like seeing the SPAM knowing that very shortly FREE or one of the other squashers will happily cackle DIE DIE as they click the kill button on the account.

Any way of getting spam metrics? I know I always catch 2 or 3 between 11 and midnight CST and they seem to run to a fairly consistent schedule, 11:30 abd just after midnight. Are there any other peak / regular times?

So many people, all chanting SPAM SPAM SPAM (cut'n'paste'n'paste'n'paste'n'...) all at the same time.

The flood of pointless data brought the server to its knees, and anytime a server got, basically, DDoS'd by user-submitted garbage, we started referring to it as "Getting Spammed".
