In the past few days, I've seen less of it than in recent weeks; we really were being drowned in it recently, especially across 7-9am GMT that is the start of my day.

The Smoke Detector and whoever is currently active on the site manage to catch the spam posts rather quickly, usually they are gone within minutes. And while having a separate queue for bot-flagged spam would be helpful to verify detection accuracy it seems that right now the number of false positives is zero.
Actually, as a mod, I can't enable the Smoke Detector for AD for my account, so if some non-mods would volunteer this would help in handling the spam posts.

@patrix This is by design, the autoflagging system is set up so that at least one human is always involved before a post is nuked
If we'd use mod flags which are binding that would instant-nuke posts. The number of FPs may be zero atm but we still want a human opinion on even the most sure calls to eliminate the possibility that we'd nuke a legit post and nobody would ever know about it.
But yeah, ask different has been pelted with spam lately :/

@Magisch I'm aware of that. Message was more aimed at other users to encourage them to participate. I'm glad that the Smoke Detector takes a lot of load of everybody in handling these posts.
