i just removed about 15 posts and banned 3 users, all very clearly spambots, is the acceptance system automated now or was this just an oversight?

nah its all good i dont mind the work, just if i know how many to watch out for it makes it a bit quicker/easier, it also means i can pay more attention to online users and pre-emptively remove ones that are obviously bots.

if that's the case you are going to be a very busy man, most days there are at least 100 and sometimes up to 200 new users waiting to be activated, only about 2% of the accounts are genuine, think it's about time we ban some more domain names, should help reduce the amount of bots I have to sift through.
