    Spam usually gets nuked anywhere from a few minutes after it is posted to a few hours. The moderators are pretty good about getting it and if people report spam when they see it (using the report post function) that helps too.

    The spam problem isn't limited to the web projects, the other forums get it too. There are anti-spam measures we use but it is a difficult balance between stopping the spammers and making the lives more difficult of the legitimate members.
