We are still getting SPAM coming through. Perhaps we could use the SPAM notices of members to suppress further SPAM from new accounts:
If a members sends a Spam notice to the moderators it could execute an automatic check if the spamming account is new. If it is, it could provisionally block the new account until a moderator has checked the issue.
I believe that most SPAM is notified to the moderators within seconds or minutes of being posted. Such an automatic block would prevent many spammers from posting multiple threads.
