There's a flood control on report spam?
Hopefully George can take a looksee at this, and hopefully its not integrated with the postings. If it is, then that won't be any good either as spam won't have to wait 60 seconds for more spam.
I have an interesting idea on how to deal with spam, but I can't see implementing it into the vB being a feasible option.
Also, tracknut is correct. We delete spam via a delete as spam option which lets us nuke all posts by that user at the same time. Just a single report for a specific poster is sufficient.
They are amazingly fast though I have to admit. I'm gone for a smoke or in the datacenter doing something for a half an hour and tons to clean up when I get back :/
