If we stop using this, or any other site, due to spammers, then they have won.

I choose to ignore it as much as I can. My account is free and I know they are working hard behind the scenes with lots on their plates. I am going to cut them lots of slack because I know in the end it will be better. They are not doing these things on purpose to drive anyone nuts.

The spam can getting annoying. But, if you report, you can get 5 pts.

They really need to keep a closer eye on this section.

AR has had a process to deal with spam for years. Once it gets reported, I understand they normally ban the IP address, which usually seems to be from certain countries.  The spam we are currently seeing on Q&A is due to a couple of user accounts being created and those accounts creating multiple Q&A.

It's annoying, but for me it's not a reason to ignore my daily "fix" of Active Rain communication.
