Spamhunter's Arsenal

So, what do you guys and gals use?

Tammi provided the tool I just used to find a lode of spam from the meticulous spammer mentioned in the alert post... I guess there were about ten of them, spread across three logins:
The algorithm goes like this: Click the offender's profile link, then replace the part of that url which reads "profile" into "discussions", presto - you get the full list.

The "Meticulous" spammer, by the way, has been using the following logins:
http://www.techrepublic.com/members/profile/6811080
http://www.techrepublic.com/members/profile/6811734
http://www.techrepublic.com/members/profile/6758211
That's another useful feature, with a link to the profile, they can change their names, but they can't get away - especially useful when they try to build up a fake good reputation, as Mr. Meticulous here did.
