[Pulp-dev] Spam Plan - collect links to spam instead of deleting them

There is no need to collect spam content anymore. We enabled the script
which handles the detection and deletion of the spam content automatically
for us.

Today, we have already sent dozens of notifications to potential spammers.
The spam cleanup script took a look at potential spam content which was
created 3 years ago at most. We gave the possible spammers 7 days to
respond. Otherwise, all the spam will be removed automatically without
further action required.

In the next few days, we will start running the script every single day for
detecting new spam content. We will also decrease time required for the
response to 2 days.
