I came in to check this year's dates, saw the spam tsunami, then noted I still had mod powers from when I was a city manager. So I banned several dozen spam accounts and deleted months worth of spam posts. Just deleted a bunch more now.
Unfortunately they seem to come in nearly as fast as they can be deleted. A rethink of the forum registration process seems to be in order.
(Managers, feel free to strip me of my mod powers, but like, on the other hand, the spam's gone.)
