Good grief! Give the mods a break, please. Even if the mods were paid for doing this as a full time job, there would be times when this would happen (ie, some 'member' would chose to spam the site....happens all the time, because the world has a more than adequate supply of ********s). It would then take the mods a while to get the message and a little more time to get things cleaned up. They don't just think it and it happens automagically.
That said, you should also bear in mind how much sense (or otherwise) this thread will make once the mods have cleaned up this particularly egregious outbreak of list spamming. Once kellypink and his/her/its posts have gone, will people be able to understand what you have written? I could, because I also saw kellypink's 'contributions' via rss, but this thread will be a mystery to those who have no idea of kellypink and what/why was going on.
The correct thing to do is just use the 'report' function and let the mods get to it when they can. That doesn't create any incomprehensible threads, and it doesn't create unnecessary traffic. Obviously, if something that looks like spam has been reported and is still there, say, 24 hours later, perhaps an additional report might be necessary, but, out of all the reports I have made, I can't currently remember one of those...
