It's really annoying that this spammer wiped out a whole day's worth of valid questions from the main page.

the moderators know now, I am sure. But to be actively watching the site 24/7 is impossible. The mods have jobs too!

Funny thing is that each "answer" is unique, as if they actually try to look involved in the conversation.

Managing a website, especially a community run website is a pain in the ass. Spammers like this can get in and blow it up from time to time. Doesn't happen too often.

Perhaps unregistered users could be limited to 5 posts a day or something.

But in the end spammers are going to get through if they want to.

We all need to continually flag her so the person/people running the website know to block/delete her. I too hate that her posts have completely ruined the REAL active questions for the day.
