I agree.  However, if the moderators/admins are diligent and
record/remove the posts quickly and it takes them time to post, they
will go away and find a better target.  The decision is not mine to
make but it is an option that we can look at as well as updating the
Forum Software and other things the Admins are doing.

This all adds up to a much lower signal/noise ratio.  And I've was
dealing with this as a Moderator in the days of FidoNet.
