We've removed most of these. However, in six cases I couldn't find any questions related to those users so I didn't have any solid evidence on which to suspend their accounts. (This unfortunately happens if they've commented on questions that I've already removed. I should probably figure out a way to get at a more complete query at some point.)

Spam accounts either come round again and do more stuff, or aren't really a problem in and of themselves by definition; so missing a few in these sorts of cases usually isn't a big problem. However, because of this, it's probably better to list the questions rather than the users (or just point to the projects that currently have spam questions if they're all recent, since going through the last few batches of recent questions is easy).

Thank you for the removal, and for the answer.
