Are there no moderators about to remove the reported spam?

:/ Looks like there wasn't. I guess I'll start visiting more often.

There is a spambot that has posted three threads in the last four hours which have not yet been removed. Despite having a dozen moderators, it seems that either our timezone coverage or the general availability of moderators is insufficient. I know today is a holiday for most of the world and cleaning out forum spam probably isn't high on anyone's list of things they wanted to be doing, but this is now a recurring pattern where spam sits for several hours before someone can get to it.

So? The spam was pretty easily identified as such and removed within hours (not days/weeks/months). The mods will get to it when they get to it. If no-one clicks on it in the meantime, everything will be fine.

I could say "You get what you pay for." but that would a bit too mean.
