Looking at the current Newest Nodes, a large number of the nodes are reaped spam. Perhaps NodeReaper could be given the power to delete them from the list displayed, instead of having them clutter up the page?

    I think that nodes successfully marked as spam should disappear entirely. The Ids replaced by a simple page "Does not exist" or similar. Leaving them lying around and still accessible seems silly to me.

    But then, I doubt that any change will happen as a result of this thread. I was just 'thinking aloud' as it were.
