 We have a few prolific spammers, most notably a variety of users posting 5
 replies linking to 8grids(dot com) every hour on the hour. Eventually,
 they catch on to the bozo and bring yet another new account into the loop.

 As we try to completely clear the spam queue regularly (rescuing valid
 replies and deleting spam), it would be nice if we had an always-delete
 blacklist for major known offenders like this.

 I understand that such an always-delete blacklist could result in lost
 support requests, but we're a responsible crew, and I'm sure we'll
 thoroughly discuss any additions to said list before acting. Plus, we'd
 only use it for major repeat offenders. For example, I'd really love to no
 longer see 5 replies about 8grids on the hour every hour, and I highly
 doubt any legitimate user would ask about it.
