    Its probably a teen using a spam tool downloaded from HF Script kiddie by what I have seen of it & to do it to a forum such as this is very odd.

    Please don't block VPN IP ranges as I use one to connect all the time.

    I'm afraid the bot has just started up again! Hopefully you can still have some of your Sunday left to relax afterwards.

    Nice clean up job :-)

    I really don't understand the point of a bot doing this.. to what benefit is it?

    On some sites when registering there's a combination of numbers and letters that must be submitted to verify you're not a bot.. could we get something like that?

    I am switching between "recaptcha" and "questions and answers" when registering and they are getting around both of them.

    I am turning registrations on during the day when I can monitor it then will switch it off again overnight.

    We have no easy solution to this at the moment.

    We can moderate every new member that joins but that is a big job as we would have to check each one out thoroughly and at the moment the StopForumSpam plugin is doing a good job (stopped 5 already today).

    I didn't think bots could get round Captcha Systems (although anything is possible) Just a thought what about Audio Captcha where a word or phrase is said in the back ground with white noise combined! The only other way is to have trusted members be come Spam Busters most members including my self can spot Spam posts and this would greatly help Admin on here too Cheers

    I'm not sure I'm comfortable with Admin privileges being dished out unless there is no other way. It's up to them and I support them in whatever they choose but I'm wary given some of the disputes on here. There have been mistakes about who are spammers, made them myself.

    Turning on the registrations when Admin are around is a good idea.

    Have you also thought of trying to capture his threads based on keywords? You've just caught mine about him. This way couldn't you redirect them to a place we can't see them so he can spam to his heart's content with no impact on the forum and you don't need to be watching as much?

    That is exactly what we have been trying to do for the last hour (ish) hence why your post was accidentally moderated
