On one site where I am staff, I would routinely clear out an average of 50 spammers three times a day. This went on for months without any help from fellow staff until the targeted spam attack(s) died out on their own. It takes mindful effort on the part of staff to keep a site readable when this stuff happens. It is somewhat irritating when hours go by with no efforts at all when there are members available who use the site at various times of the day who would not mind the chore.
