Are you doing any spam-reporting? I do that for almost every piece I 
receive, here at home, and get maybe one/month.

C. and I had a running dispute as to how useful it would be, to chase 
down spammers on the wiki (instead of just blocking them). I didn't have

If I can be of any help, please feel free to email me directly. I've 
never done any ML moderating or managing, but (famous last words) how 
hard can it be? --/tj/
