Everyone bitched about how no new members can sign up, so he fixed the Captcha gimmick, and now all that's signing up are spammers.

On the plus side, most spammers use fake email addresses when registering, which means they aren't able to self-activate their accounts.

I know for a fact that there are a good amount of lurkers. They pop in, muss up the lawn, mby steal a garden troll or pink flamingo.... then sneek off in the darkness... of night.

I get so many spammer registrations that I don't even bother to look. I just delete the email notice and let them pile up until I can find a better solution.

Those spammer fucks are fast. I have a new forum that's barely a month old, and I get an average of 5-10 new spammers a day. If you catch them in the act you can ban their IP address. Otherwise you've gotta delete their user names, add the name to the banned user name list, and if they activated themselves that means they used a real email address, so you've gotta ban that, too. Or, you can just choose to ignore them and they'll pile up by the HUNDREDS.
