You must have missed my post in the front office section....I haven't taken care of them completely, but I figured out how to ban IP addresses and ranges (through IPower) and spent the whole morning yesterday going through spammers and their IP addresses (thankfully many of them are duplicates).

I noticed a significant drop off in spammers since then. There are still some that get through, and I'm trying to keep track of and ban their IP addresses, but it's been much quieter since then.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.
