Thanks! I was planning on a search and destroy through the account list in the coming weeks, this motivates to get started sooner than later.

Yeah, I'm going to do some cleaning this weekend and get rid of a bunch more dubious characters.

Wondering if there is a link to the uptake in traffic...more activity on the boards (or more users?) is somehow "monitored" and flagging us for more activity. Might be overthinking this... ???

I've also wondered if there's users/former users that put us on "lists"...

It's also completely possible that google or microsoft sold an account list from someone using hotmail or gmail.  That is, after all, how they monetize their free mail services.

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this or not, but I noticed a new user who is only posting links to websites (i.e. not comments, etc., just the links):

You can report individual posts to mods with the report button and the entire staff gets a mail I think.

Edit Incidentally, "spambot" is the first term on my fill suggestions on both laptop and mobile when filling in the reason for the report. Usually I'm too lazy to type the entire phrase and just tap the suggestion. =P
