I thought it was another Trump topic with the word "Tremendous" in the title.
The opening post comes across as someone telling us this very forum has been spammed, someone claiming to have a better IQ than other posters should have known that if he is copying a post from his forum over to this forum - he needs to use the quote box,
The "brainless and idiotic" conclusions are just light hearted sarcasm - which if you are honest, you can see how the opening post may attract sarcasm.
Back on topic...

but modifications to quick tools would make it much easier and faster to delete the posts and the spammers as well.
What type of modifications are you suggesting?
My guess for posts...
If you click "move posts" it takes you to the MCP where you can read the posts and tick the little box on the right side to select the ones you want to move - this would enable deleting posts quickly without having to confirm every single one.
Maybe something that works in a similar way, little tick boxes down the side of the topic list - then a delete selected button.
However, certainly not worth implementing into the core and I doubt many extension authors would spend their time on it (not for free anyhow) because if people use a good Q&A and update it regularly they can avoid most spam, there are also a few useful extensions out there, one that springs to mind is HifiKabin's Obscure Registration Code extension, at the end of the day though, taking the time to prevent spam in the first place will save a lot of time and messing around at a later date.
There's a tremendous guide over at HifiKabin: https://www.phpbb.hifikabin.me.uk/viewt ... ?f=8&p=595
which has a few tips and is well worth a read.
