Largely because whilst this batch is fairly obvious to a human, by and large we can stop spammers using code rules before they join. The others need to post first.

the one i coincided with was definitely human and a russian speaker, they had posted their advert in russian ( oops for an english language site) a few times so i anticipated their next thread choice but one and left em a message in russian, after a few petulant posts in another thread they evaporated to sort out their act and our good mods cleaned up the mess.
i wasn’t rude i just told em they would not get paid for using russian rather than a target language and that i thought a russian spammer was unlikely to be in malasia.

as most of their "product" was intended to have a broad but "mainstream" (ie available free etc ) appeal i assume the object was phishing rather than profit from pay to see.

next one will get " recruited " by the fsb if they can complete the 3 "tasks"

the attack may be subsiding though. I have just nuked a single spam registration, which is a novelty. It is more than one of us nuking and we can't be arsed to compare notes as it is what it is, but my information is the clearest.
