When I tried to post a comment, it took more than few mins & got message similar like below
We have tried to add your comment 3 times without success. Our servers are just a little overworked. Sorry.
But here my suggestion is provide an option to recover the comment. I have typed more than bunch of lines, submitted & got the above message. Finally lost the comment. There's no way to retrieve that. For answers it's not an issue because we could recover the contents of answer as the answer textbox in edit mode.
In past, I have faced this issue few times but couldn't reproduce the issue & I forgot to post this earlier.

As you can see, the spam was already cleaned up. User is gone, total answers count is "0" but...
the list of the forum remains full with all 9 items, altough all got reported and are "automatically deleted".
I know that it has been already suggested to automatically clean up those messages, once they got deleted by the reports, and I know it is not so easy because the messages could have answers and so on, but...
Is it possible to check that deletion-flag while giving the result of the query and give only the ones that are still active?
There are very "prolific" spammers that make decens of posts before they get caught, and it is a time waste to go through the full list, just to find out that 90% of those messages are already banned. If the query only contains the active ones (as it happens in the lists of QA-items), then we can save a lot of time.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
