I had reported 4 times during the past week. I feel these are bots, so it will be an uphill battle if some changes aren't made, at least temporarily.

Something like all posts from a new account up to a certain period has to go through manual approval. This will put a huge burden on moderators, so may be we users can help in deciding whether a new post is spam or not by some voting mechanism? These posts will not be visible until approved.

That's a great suggestion. I wish this were directly visible to the devs at dev.to.
