Hand Spammers Waving the White Flag?

Ever since I implemented techniques to automatically moderate hand spammers (aka Indian SEO's) they seem to have noticed they aren't getting through and have gone away. The first couple of weeks it didn't seem like they were slowing down at all, but they were moderated at least so nobody else saw them. Then I made some other changes in how I'm handling spammers that still did it by hand and suddenly they are just gone.

Before the last few changes I easily had about 10 hand spams getting trapped as moderated posts a day, then suddenly nothing moderated has shown up for over a week now.

Did they just give up?

We shall see, but this is promising!
