I opened a support ticket, so hopefully some attention will come and this Spam will get removed.

I don't think there's any moderator monitoring this section of the forum now...for whatever reason.

The only reply I got to my enquiry was "It looks like the admins have been busy." and that was 5 days ago.

Apparently nobody is moderating this section of the forum right now.

Just what I waited for. 
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

I don't care if Ken doesn't care, and he doesn't. It's his front yard, not mine.

It seems that some of the annoying threads got removed at last.

I sent a long support ticket 4 hours prior to your post. That likely did it.

In it, I mentioned the out-of-control spam, how it makes the regular community react, and I included this post as a possible solution.

Ken gave a simple--and for me satisfactory--reply concerning both issues, and then this happens. It may be minimal and temporary (as it often is,) but every little bit counts.

Thanks Blair! Your support ticket got more attention than mine did at least.

Wow,
those damn spammers are getting smarter now.

Instead of posting the message themselves, they quote it from a not removed former posting and put some random text below.

Ken could easily implement simple changes that would get rid of 99% the spammers on here. It works on other forums quite effectively.

This guy outsmarted himself 

He copied the message from here, but sadly forgot to insert his advertisement.
