No Kninjanin, I had not really noticed that specifically. But I have seen that Dan takes very good care of this site.
I knew that Rooster did it when he was moderating the Blurt site, though. Rooster gets up very early in the morning, but sometimes I was up even earlier (or maybe I had not gone to bed yet), and I would see the spam along with the trolls, and Rooster would just sweep it all away, every day.
So it is a big job.
