rough number of posts per month for the Spam Months (nov 2017-sept 2018) (this is just posts minus topics, cuz 99% of the spambots made new topics to spam)

November 2017: 242 posts

December 2017: 460 posts

January 2018: 354 posts

February 2018: 428 posts

March 2018: 553 posts

April 2018: 516 posts

May 2018: 524 posts

June 2018: 334 posts

July 2018: 268 posts

August 2018: 140 posts

September 2018: 177 posts

this makes the current month the most active since August 2017, and it will (>99% chance) end up with the most posts since January 2017
