But I'm seeing several accounts posting spam...
Just adding my 2 cents...I have exactly this same issue sometimes.
My morning routine includes a quick sweep through a lot of the new posts from the day before or from overnight activity on the forum. I will often find a morning (or at least morning here in the US) glut of spam from more than one user when I do this, and as I tend to move briskly through the threads I'm often stuck waiting 60 seconds for each spam user I find. Given that I have other things to do with my mornings I often don't bother to hang around and report more than one or two of them simply because I don't want to wait out the clock (especially in welll-traveled parts of the forum that I expect other users will report or mods will see on their own).
I won't pretend to know what the best solution is for that, but I can attest to having felt the very same frustration and it reduces the number of spam posters that I can afford to take the time to report on any given occasion.
Also - before I finally read in an earlier thread that a mod will sweep all of a spammer's posts - I used to try to track down and report each individual post from each spammer I was reporting. I've known better for a while now but it may be wise to add that information to the rules or guidelines section to keep other well-meaning souls from sending excessive spam reports for a single user. My first 2-3 years here I never knew that and I'm sure some of the mods paid the price for my zeal.
