The dAmnquotes Automatic Administration Bot is a small program written by Vespian written to irradicate spam quickly and effectively from the pending quotes database. The admins of the site were having a lot of problems keeping up with all the spam, so i wrote this to clear the some 900 pending postings. I am making this publicly available here for the site admins to access and use (because the admin I gave it to, isn't using it).
