    If the same spammer posts two messages on a single thread, should I click the icon on both spam messages to report both of them? Or is it sufficient to click on just one of the messages on the thread and assume the mod will see the second spam message?

    Why is there an enforced delay of 60 seconds between reporting spam messages? If I see two spam messages, this just makes it inconvenient to me to report the second one. When I click on a second spam message to report it, and get this message telling me I have to wait 30 seconds before reporting a second one, it usually just annoys me and I abandon the attempt to report the second. I don't see why I should be waste time waiting around for an extra 30 seconds just to tell you about a second spam.

    we will most probably see the second spam so it's fine just to report the one post.

    Do you want details and the like in the reports?

    I have just been sending one word messages saying 'spam', since i figured you didn't have the time or inclination to wade through my blithering as well!

    Have you guys thought of locking up new registrations for a week or so while you clean up the existing spammers? Maybe that would keep things under control for a bit.

    My suggestion would be to do that and then implement a simple screening process moving forward.
