Actually, Zarkov, for the one time in a blue moon, the moderators actually took action and board members, even ones who do not typically get along, "united" in the face of a common enemy.
As for the moderators and the flood spamming issue, in proportion to the criticism they received for doing nothing, they should also be granted their proper dues in my opinion for stepping up to the plate and cleaning up the board, even if in slightly delayed fashion. I am sure the task of deleting all those posts, perhaps requiring even the writing of a script or two, was rather time consuming and rather thankless.
So let me just take this moment now to at least thank the moderators by way of this response to you. They deserve that much.
Here , here.
Now can they be kept out.
By the way, Admin has a feedback button!

Hi Moderators and everyone,
I would like to express the greatest admiration for these guys and it seems that for a while at least we are going to be free of the nasty spam problem.
I hope that those who expressed the view that they were leaving will all return "in peace".
Great Job Guys(and gals?)
