Do we know the country of origin of the recent spammers?

If yes, can all IP addresses from a single country be blocked for a few weeks to discourage these spammers from posting?

The usual flagging and downvoting has not been working effectively from what I can tell. So what else has been done in this regard? What have we learnt about these spammers?

Are Community Managers aware of this problem?

The relevant country of origin for this wave is India.

I have to believe blocking India would cause a few problems here.

We're keeping an eye on this & trying a few things to slow them down. Best thing to do right now is just flag stuff (as rude / abusive) as soon as you see it.
