Thanks for the help guys.
Mike has been doing an awesome job fighting back the evil-doers for us.
It's interesting to observe, perhaps, that most of the spam attacks seem to occur during the north-american day/australian night. So by the time I get onto the board, Mike has already dealt with them. For the minority that occur during the australian day/north-american night, I get to zap them while Mike is sleeping (though I suspect he's a bit like a dragon in that even when he's sleeping he has half and eye open). So, between us we have more-or-less 24 hour coverage.
On the otherhand, anything that can reduce Mike's manual workload would be a good thing for sure.
