You may not be aware of how many spammers we find and how many posts we delete. We typically see spammers run their post count right up to 25 in a few hours to get over the signature hump. We then usually send them a warning and delete about 20 of their posts. That tends to discourage most of them. If it doesn't they get a boot so far up their hind end that they can taste the leather.
