Would it be worth anything to report them to Google, do you think? Google has a form for reporting spammy web sites. They probably already know about them, but you never know. Do they get worse if they know you've reported them, or anything?

Zilla (December 2013) is unstoppable. And really likes pizza.
Turtle (November 2015) isn't cute yet, but he's working on it.

Oh yes, please I think the mods are amazing! You guys do an incredible job, and it must be such a pain to physically go through each of these posts and delete them. nightmare job for you all. So thank you.
No my comment is nothing about that, i was really just wondering if there is something I can do to filter out words so it doesn't come up for me or something. Kind of the opposite of 'search this topic'. Probably not, sounds a little unrealistic!!

But yes Meerkatsmum it is meaning I actually don't come on very often these days, but I also know it is a time zone thing. Anyway thanks for all your work mods :)

The k-----n spam usually starts piling up just as I'm about to get to sleep (11pmish Eastern Standard Time) and I think a LOT of the spam links that happen over night happen in that window (there's usually about 20 when I sign off). Which is to say, if I can help, I volunteer. I'd take an unholy glee in zapping k------n threads.

Oh my golly gosh they've been busy overnight! I have never seen so much in Random Thoughts and Active Topics was a sight to behold. Idiots (actual/auto).

Presumably their IPs are known to mods or superuser tech admin? I manage a team of very geeky people (we are web server/service admins) - will have a word at work later and see if thery know of anything that may help with robustifying against this kind of cr@pola if that would be helpful..?

Yes, they were shocking today. I was on around 1.45pm my time and there was I think 1 proper thread hidden amongst over 60 evil spam threads.

None after logging on tonight, well done mods. You rock.

I often see quite a few, if you guys want a hand deleting them then let me know. I'm online on and off all day and late at night so it wouldn't be a problem to delete a few spammy threads.

I'd be happy to help too. I'm usually surfing while feeding as they start coming through!

Ok so the spammer today is called by the day of the week - clever name. And is pretty clever in that she has not written the name of our 'favourite' room in the house - she has put spaces in. And spaces in the web address as well. This is not automated!!! sneaky sneaky.

No, they are real people who are paid to jump through every hoop we put in front of them. :(

But if there are spaces in the web address, doesn't that nullify the whole Google search ranking thing?
