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.
