If I login and the spambot spams are still there hours later - and the bots usually post the magical number of 3 posts - I report them, stating that the number of spam posts. Otherwise, I have found through experience that if you report only the one, the others will be left up. It's my contribution to GC!

It does scare me the accuracy of content in some of the spam. Can auto-generated spam be that precise?

Lastly, why do people spam? Aside from the porn spam and the nuisance spam (the kind that is made to clog inboxes and comment logs with the aim of interrupting service), do they really result in more traffic/sales?
