Today has been the calmest/easiest day I've had as a moderator.
I had one person to respond to. I made one comment elsewhere. I approved one post. I declined three posts.
I'm not sure what setting Rob has CF on, but it seems to correlate with decreased spam attempts that actively hit our filtration system. Correlation is not causation, but I suspect the two are intertwined.
I haven't even seen any of the suspicious posts today. (I'll avoid going into details, for not necessarily obvious reasons.) That's nice as those could take hours to untangle.
Anyhow, I haven't had a day with this level of activity since well before I was asked to moderate. If I'd known it was going to be like this, I probably would have gone for a much longer drive today. Ah well... I got the chance to catch up on a few other real-world activities.
I guess my point is, whatever setting you have it on, we have had significantly less activity. For better or worse, and the two may not actually be related - but odds are good that they are related. Weekends are actually usually slower than weekdays, from what I've seen, but they're not this slow.
