    So is the gyst of this that spammers want trackbacks to move up the ranks of search engine returns? So the longer the threads exist the more they get out it?

    It fucking enrages me slightly that this forum got so bogged down with this. I will triangle exclamation point the piss out of these guys if it'll help.

    it's been the same way with every Wordpress site I've made/worked on. Suddenly it'll get spam bombed by thousands of comments.. The filter catches most of them but it really fucking sucks to have to spend real time sifting through this kind of bullshit.

    So, basically for anyone who wasn't aware, when you hit the report icon, the mods and Clay get an email with the spam post link which is CRAZY helpful for finding it all. Also, your comment comes through. Don't blow the chance to be funnay.

    Also, spam in comments can only be deleted by Clay, so if you see those, email Clay or PM one of the mods: DRG, El Negro Magnifico, standard or myself and we'll let Clay know. (Thanks Sash!)
    Is there anyway you can make it so we can attach images to spam reports? I've been getting very into photography and painting and would like to send you my nude self portraits depicting my anger about the spam threads.

    roger that. i think that's why i found so much old old spam from last summer hanging around yesterday when i went on a meticulous spam hunt. the ones that get buried inside a thread are the hardest for us to find. it's super sneaky.
