    For every 1 spam thread you report, 10 more are raised in it's place.

    It's commonplace on all popular forums. Spam filters aren't perfect, they pick up most but not all threads. I have a friend who runs a facebook group of about 6k people, he gets well over 120 false signups a day.

    It'd just be so fun to devote all of my time to banning P̶a̶r̶t̶y̶ these spammers. I'd be able to put it on my CV and everything.

    Wow. What a responsibility ;)
