Hey guys,

I'm more of the opinion that if this particular format the spam transactions 
are using is addressed, it will not only cause the mempool to relax, but it 
will also give us time to regroup and work on Layer 2 before the next onslaught 
of spam transactions using a (slightly) different format begins.
