Went in and cleared the moderation queue. A number of spam threads in the General section have been deleted and their accounts purged. Thank you everyone who made reports, feel free to message me directly if you see any other problems.

Gave a new user a 3-day ban and deleted their thread for being an (obvious & poor) attempt at trolling.

Still learning the xenforo mod tools, so everybody be warned that my moderation will be especially arbitrary and capricious for a while!

There's an open report 'cuz the Hare Krishna spammer showed up again, but the thread is gone now. Did somebody else handle it, or did my favorite lunatic delete it himself? I'm leaving the report open for now, until that gets figured out.

At least twice over the past week, our anti-spam has flagged 5 accounts. I'm too lazy to dig into who they were, but they were all new registrations and am just mentioning it here in case we hear of someone unable to register.

For that matter, any more spam-detected new accounts show up, I'm just going to reject them without reason.

Whenever new registers are caught in the filter, I've been denying but with a message letting 'em know they can appeal; basically all the time they're those weird obviously-procedural names, so it hasn't come up because no one's appealed, but heads up I guess.

Cleaned out some more spam registrations .. though one of them felt like it might be an actual person (the account didn't have too many spam matches, just 15+ IP matches). I approved that one. Hope it doesn't come to bite me in the rear..
