More moderators may be helpful for some tasks, but the crux of this particular issue is the efficiency of the attacking bot, the sheer number of messages.

I appreciate Klaus taking the time to delete those manually, and in the past I've ditched large batches myself.

But since PHPBB provides a way to delete all of them at once, when Klaus and I and the other moderators get the ability to do that it'll make shortwork of a previously-onerous task.
