Thanks everyone for all the helpful feedback. Spam is a problem everywhere these days, so yes, we are trying to combat this on multiple fronts. For the spammers that have been identified, we are blocking them in multiple ways to make their life as hard as possible in case they ever decide to try again.

You'd be surprised at the number of spam attacks that do end up being deflected every day. Unfortunately, no system is perfect in this ever-escalating war against spam, and some attacks manage to slip through from time-to-time.

Please keep reporting any spam that makes it on to the system. The sooner these things get detected, the sooner they can be removed, and the less damage they can do. Some of the details about spam that we gather are shared with spam filtering engines so that the community as a whole benefits from more robust defenses against them.

Best regards,
Andy
