Unless other mods have been removing the spam here faster than I can see it, anyway. Looks like my theory of the most recently created board attracting all the spammers is a bust. I'll probably take this board down in a couple of days.

I've tried it a few years ago and it didn't work for me either. My guess is that some of the spambots that log in and don't post are actually collecting usage data, and they are used to direct the other spambots to the most viewed forums.

Good theory. When the new contest board was created, it was getting all the spam, and probably lots of recent views. But recently it seems like the spam is pretty spread out.
