I've never understood the ROI on spam - the time and effort vs. 0% ROI due to what I imagine is all being deleted or captured in spam filters and junk folders. 

I don't mind it in The Rain, I make an extra 5 -15 points per day reporting it LOL.

There is definitely too much spam and junk mail in the world, I wish something could truly be done to alleviate it.

ActiveRain Member Support does an incredible job clearing the spam almost as it happens.   I just reported three spam posts.  Generally, the bug zappers make them disappear within minutes of reporting.

Spam is a fact of life. Smite it, kill it, delete it, block it.

And move on.

It happens & just report it. It's as annoying as fly swatting. I've just zapped a few of them but I don't think we are being bombarded.
