    We’re still getting a lot of spam accounts too.  Anything we can do about that?

    I’m killing the spam accounts as soon as I see them.

    Just checking in here, has this issue continued to persist?

    Hey Gang,
    We are going through another bad round of this at the moment. As you know. Intruder notified me immediately and I was delayed in responding, so sorry about that. I’ve started the whack-a-mole ban user/ban IP game, so hopefully it will be cleaned up and stopped soon. Thanks.

    I’ve been trying to stomp on them as quickly as they pop up. My current record is 16 seconds after the post…

    Are you still seeing a lot of them or have we at least slow them down?

    Ok. I’ll try to jump in for backup more often then, but by the time I arrive it seems like you’ve probably already whacked them?
