Hi there! I just wanted to provide an update on here about the spam. As was already discussed on here unfortunately there's not a whole lot we can do on our end to avoid those pesky alert emails after a spammer has made a comment (unless you unfollow a category as Clifford suggested). I've discussed the recent high volume of spam with the engineering team that supports this site and they will be closely analyzing what they can do to screen out even more of these spam messages that are getting through. Until then us moderators will keep removing spam as quickly as possible!
