Is there more spam these days, or is it just me?

The night before last, I reported over 30 posts and never got to the end of them before my fingers gave out. Last night, I reported about 10 before I quit. There appeared to be dozens more.

Do we have any hurdles set up to slow down spammers? This must be a total chore for the mods.

@neologist,
Yes, it's a chore.

This is also why there is a one-minute hold between posts. It does slow them down (believe it or not, it has been worse!).

And thank you SO much for taking the time to report. It really does help us.

@jespah,
I still do it sometimes. Sometimes I try to report and it's already been removed.

@roger,
Ha! I find the same!

And I think it's you who's beating me to it.

I regularly have a scan through at about 7.30am Brit time which would be about 2.30am Eastern USA.
I am often surprised at how many Americans seem to be around at that time, some of whom are also reporting spammers.

I think that Robert should devise a dastardly bot check system to stop these buggers auto registering.

On a brighter point, I have potted on 24 tomato plants, 60 Cosmos, 60 geraniums, god knows how many night scented stocks and four giant sunflowers, just for fun and to give passing tourists something to talk about.

My bones are sore and a hot bath is calling, but I promise to be here at your 2.30am tomorrow, knocking off spam.

G'night, peeps.

@roger,
Passata.

Gallons of sunshine kept in jars for cheering us up in the cold winter months.
