To Jim Barry and other ESRI employees: is there any news about when we can expect some significant changes to the ESRI forums to combat spam?

I must say I am at the point of giving up and thinking: let ESRI solve it and clean up the mess! This means I will no longer bother to clean up the spam and move it to Trash in the wee hours the ESRI employees are taking a nap on the other side of the globe.

I think we all agree this is a totally unacceptable state for the Forums to be in. That a single spammer can use bots to haunt the forums for months on end, and not being locked out definitively, is something to really think about. I have never seen this happen on any other forum like this.
