All I can say is that we didn't get as much spammed as before.

Has anyone done analysis for the majority of the IP addresses of the spammers? Call me an ass, but my guess is that 90% is from Russia, China, Netherlands and Brazil. I'm curious what would happen if we did Country IP Subnet Blocking test for a few weeks, what would happen to the spam. Doesn't have to be a permanent ban, because I know we get viewers from all over the world, but it would be an interesting experiment to see what the ratio of spam is before and after the test.

At the moment, putting the ban function back to an easy place is the priority.

Wouldn't call you an ass but would definitely agree that the majority of the spams comes from those countries you listed above. As a matter of fact, the other day I was reading some spam statistics on countries that produce the most spams and I think China or Russia was rated the top country.
