Popular forums are often the target of spam bots. Seems that no one was around to delete them as quickly as usual this morning. *shrug*

You should feel blessed to have only seen 5. I feel like I'm going to break my mouse hitting the "report spam" button. The 60s cooldown between reports is annoying too, since the posts often come in groups. Something like 5 reports per 5 minutes would make more sense than 1 per 60s, I think.

You dont need to report all the threads/posts from the same spammer. They all get deleted automatically when they are banned.

Ahh yeah, that is true. I do sometimes see multiple new accounts all created around the same time to spam too.
