Today, seeing AskUbuntu, it seems that spam is getting frequent, 30 minutes a spam thread is being posted. The most recent one was about "making people to look younger". The first one i saw today was about a game..

  • Oh, we've had times when the spam has been in much larger quantities and much more frequent than anything you've seen today.

Spam comes randomly. Sometimes nothing for a week, sometimes dozens within a single hour.

Maybe somebody who really tries to get some people click their links thinks that their chances are higher if they send a wave of spam posts, maybe it's just coincidence.

As long as it gets back to a lower rate after an hour or a day again, there's nothing to worry. We've handled all spam waves successfully in the past and will continue to do that in the future!

    The spammers just don't get it that this community is too powerful for them! ;-)
