Most of it appears to be over the weekends, particularly Saturday mornings.
Maybe the moderators should just pre-screen all posts between Friday and Monday.

I think it would be best if every new account created had their first three posts moderated. I doubt these spammers would bother coming up with 3 genuine VFX related posts before spreading their filth.

VC guys may be busy with their product development, but there might be some good info
here> (if they are reading this)

there are some new MODs which might be of some use in filtering the spambots.
my 2 cents.
