Many of us have noticed a lot of spam lately. We report the spam yet the posts remain. What's going on? A community manager just made a post about this issue in the feedback forum.
"I'll have to check, but my understanding (which, granted, isn't very thorough, which is why I have to check) is that spammers just get banned. I'm not sure that the posts get removed.
Maybe I'm just an idiot n00b, but (honest question here) do they have to be removed?"
