I begin each and every day by manually banning spammers, and then manually deleting their posts. Every damn day. The column is a 24/7 party/debating society/primal-scream therapy session, but the locks are open and Taiwanese and Eastern European riff-raff drop by every night, and every morning I have to kick them out, clean up their mess, tidy up. Eating up 45, 60, 90 minutes every morning.
