I found 265 spam comments in my blog's comment moderation queue this afternoon.
This video shows how I actually do filter through mountains of spam looking for valid comments that go astray and get mistaken as spam.
And although it seems like I'm scrolling through the list pretty quickly, the video (or running Camtasia) seems to slow my scroll rate down by about 20%. So imagine it happening that much faster.
