I've Cleaned Up ALOT of Spam

Sorry if this isn't where this should go, It said problems with spam so I thought it would go here.

Anyway, I have spent about 2 hours deleting spam from spambots. I probably deleted about 100 spam posts and threads. I just wanted to inform anyone, and if you see any spam, report it here or to other staff.

To tell a spambot,

-They usually always start with 'hi' in their posts
-Their posts don't have anything to do with the topic
-They have all lowercase names for their usernames
-They never use numbers, though I have seen some with 01 after their name
-They have some strange link like 'r4 card' or 'boat accesories' or something else in their signature
