I have been getting those ridiculous spams on my Gmail. Just delete them and black them.

In my experience, things like this can help a little. No graphics, PMs, or (especially) external links allowed until a certain (undisclosed) number of legit posts.
HBA has a (blessedly) small amount of this spam/scam that eventually makes it through to users, so I suspect the moderators and admin are already doing things quite well.

That can have its downsides, I have had several legitimate people contact me through PM's about CriCri stuff over the years even though they didn't post much if at all.
