It seems so. It has been the case for a very long time now. For a while, 
I was able to get in every now and then to lock out some of the more 
aggressive spammers who had hundreds of spam posts, but, it was a losing 
battle without the actual admin doing something to stop it.

How recent is your backup? I pulled a backup  a while back (august 2013) 
that I stored on an 'archival' drive, but, I lost it when I rebuilt my 
computer (more specifically, I did not move the copy onto the new 
machine and I just wiped the drive two weeks ago and did not think to 
copy that off first).  I am attempting to pull a copy now, will see if 
it works now that the site is hammered and seems to rarely respond.

I would be very pleased if you would be able to do this. Let me know if 
I am able to help somehow.
