I stay in close touch with many of our members, so I think I would be informed fairly immediately of anything that happened. If I suspect that something may have happened, I will visit the Daily Statistics section of the Admin CP. If the number of "Conversations" rises rapidly, I'll start to wonder, especially if there is no corresponding increase in "Conversation Messages." (Good conversations tend to have many replies, whereas spam tends to be just a single message.) What do others do? What are best practices for different sizes of forums?
