I'll add my vote for gritting our teeth and remaining unmoderated
and unmoved.  I know that for some it is extremely easy to
skip the spam; I think it's true that some systems make it hard
not to be inconvenienced fairly badly by the spam.  For most
of us, it's a simple matter of judicious use of the DELETE key
or the trash-barrel button.  I find it a trivial matter.
In almost every case, as Janice says, the spammer's subject
line (or even the spammer's "name") tells it all at a glance.
