You report 'em, we'll zap 'em!

The other thing that may happen is when we zap a new spam profile, it also zaps all their comments.  I know I saw a spammer pushing Wi-Fi extenders, so killing that profile may have cleaned your thread at the same time.

We've increased the frequency of daily checks on the social roster, so the lifespan of new spammer profiles is shorter than before.  We'll continue to play whack-a-mole as long as they come out to play :)
