When you report a spam, it puts a bar across the screen almost identical to the PM system bar, that all admins can see until one of us clears the report. Most importantly, we can see it from any part of the site, not just the forums. I still probably find about 20-30% by locating and destroying unreported posts though. Given the changes they made to who can ban what accounts at what threashold levels, it's important to report the more prolific ones early Once they go past a certain point, only Darqflame, Myself or one of the Devs can currently ban it (long story, blame FFXI). The per account topic spam rate limiters actually do work, it just doesn't take all that many messages to hit the "noob limit" and then they make another account manually near as I can tell.
