I know you guys can't tell, but uh . . .
That's ALL spam.

Have you guys just given up? Am I the only one actually mass disapproving anymore?

EDIT: So, I disapproved all those posts. There were 54 of them.
Next time I leave, I don't want to get back and see 54 more posts built up. If I can disapprove 54 at once, you can disapprove 2 or 3 as they show up.

It's Christmas, people have other stuff in their minds.

Besides, if you check the check the logs. Haidawe, Timbles and me and several others have helped you ban almost 3 pages worth of spam just today. I think that's about 150 posts.

Sheesh. Sorry for the pissy attitude, I'm just getting real tired of all the spam. Also, I've never seen so much spam just appear out of nowhere. It usually seems to just trickle in in groups of 2 or 3 posts. And sometimes I forget people celebrate on Christmas. It's just such a strange concept to me. My daily life just goes on.

I get rid of some and more of it just appears right after I finish cleaning it up.

But disapproving isn't the same as banning, right?
So we're kinda slopping up trickles of yuck without gunning for the source, hmm?
How do we change this?

Honestly, there's so much spam and they only post once that banning isn't really helping as much. I have yet to see an account with the same IP as well.

I suppose if the Banhammer's true power is overwhelmed by numbers our only option is steadfastly continuing the operation of the disapproval gatling gun. The gatling disapproval. The disappratling g- ah, screw it, I can't make it work.

But I'll work it anyway.

"You are not authorised to access this area"

This is apparently the message I get when I try to disapprove a post that Haidawe already pinched away from under my nose.

You win this time, Haidawe.

So I just logged in and didn't see any spam.

Does this mean the issue is solved or am I jinxing it.

Edit: Ah @#$!

They seem to be breaking out of the Randomness section as well.
