No more spam tonight!

At 10 p.m. PDT there was not a single Korean spam in the U.S. or European boards. Great--and thanks to the moderators.

And it only took four months to sort out.

Actually, last night I saw spam appearing on the Europe board at the rate of one to five per minute. But the spam was disappearing at a similar rate. Each spam lasted from between 20 seconds and 3 minutes. I monitored by frequently refreshing.

I suspect that the spam removal is partly automated and partly human directed, as fully automated would not have the variance.

How hard is it to automatically remove any post that has Korean characters in it?

Congratulations to the moderators for finally solving this pesky problem.

Seems to be working, as said they still appear and then disappear.

I don't congratulate my daughter when she needed 5 months to clean her room but I stop being snarky.
