I use my email client to actively block spam.
I usually block the entire domain.
Of course, that doesn't slow down the absolute asshats that run spam sites.
From my history:
blocked 6/18/2012 executivebizbriefings.com
blocked 7/10/2012 executivebusinessbriefings.com
blocked 8/22/2012 executivebusinessreports.com
I've numerous examples of this sort of thing in my history.
It's the sort of thing that gets me fantisizing about hunting some people down and giving them a really good real life beating. I'm so tired of the persistent nagging.

To be fair to all the last three days have consisted of a weekend and a 'snow day' so I doubt there was much activity. I'm fully expecting the soapbox to degenerate into a haven for sex jokes that only virgins would find funny any minute now though.
I think we need another option on the report / flag button for "Does not belong in this forum".
Maybe select that, get to pick another forum, then if 5? people agree off it goes.
I also think downvoting in the Soapbox would be valid. You could punish the crap jokes and flame wars can be funny at times, you just don't want them filling up the lounge. Perhaps downvoting without loss of rep so it doesn't put people off posting or arguing.
