If you know any way to delete spam en masse that would work better 
before (rather than after) an import, please suggest it.

According to the Bz manual, Bz can be configured to run CGI scripts. 
Perhaps finding "Unknown" attachments and deleting them can be 
automated. Otherwise, it looks like searching for spam itself, and for 
contributions from identified spammers, could take a while, but I will 
do it.
