At work.

I have now harvested the current crop and dropped it off at the trash bin.

I'm sure Roach is aware of this, and if not...

Have swung the banhammer around, but I don't think it'll take long for them to re-register.

when they register they have to go through captcha and email confirmation right? Maybe just ban the domain of the email if its not like yahoo/gmail

Good question - With version updates of the software, there is potential exploits (in registration) to get past the user registration with varying degrees of success - if they can get past one question for example it makes the effort much less and the amount of time spent to make an account is much less.

Spambots will delibrately do a few things to make them seem like normal users:
- use a gmail or yahoo account (they have a big stash of dodgy accounts to use from)
- use diverse ipranges that are not practical to ban

The interesting thing also is that some of these spam things i was also getting at work... I've got a feeling something big globally has been switched on or is having a trial run.

Yeah i've deleted a few accounts as well, 3 just then and two the other day.

(For Roach & Nero) Easiest way I've found click on user -> administer user -> under the heading delete user -> delete user and delete posts. Thought there's no real advantage banning them to as next time they come it will be a different ip address anyway..

Yes ^ That method. Don't do ip bans as you can accidently ban someone, and don't ban their email because well... their disposable.

Yes I've used that before as well Funky, but I cleaned a good page and a half of topics from the board on Saturday, but I used the moderator control panel. I selected each dodgy topic, marked it and did a mass delete.

Was pretty effective for a quick solution.

At the moment, registrations are required to be ok'ed before they can post - that's stopped the forum spam dead which is good, still working on the next step though.
