Is it just me or is there more spam than usual the last days? Has anything changed in how we handle spam, making it more visible, or is it just another wave?
It's ironic that you're asking this question in the middle of a new spam wave... >:-)
When looking at all this going on in the chat room, your meta question looked (just for a µ-second) like spam too:
To answer your questions:
- Yes, they come in waves (When some "SEO optimizing company" gets hired, probably)
- No, we still handle it the usual way (humans flagging it as spam)
- No, we're not making it more visible. (You've just seem your first spam wave apparently)
- We even have a standard saying: SPAM WAVE! Man the SPAM stations!
Now I'm going back to flag some spam again
