In Soviet Russia, spam sends you!
There is no overkill.

While I would like to thank the community for being on top of our...spam...problem. I would also like to encourage people to be careful about clicking the report button, sometimes we get a new user that just says hi and it is just that and not spam.  ;D
It's not the one with your name on it; it's the one addressed "to whom it may concern" you've got to think about.

would you rather have a Ranma1/2 AMV to "Lovely bunch of coconuts" fastjack?
May god grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, to change the things I can, and the firepower to make the difference.

Suicide is never the answer, now homicide on the other hand, that has posibilities.

As has been pointed out elsewhere, ReCaptcha has been cracked, which is why many message boards have been inundated with spam in the last month.

I would suggest again that some other means of user account validation be used, seeing as we keep getting the spam in waves. Literally every time I visit the page, the "latest member" is clearly a spam account, being a long assemblage of random letters for a name.

There should be an e-mail confirmation. We have that on our private gaming board, and it works. Though we work on latest phpBB.

THIS is ironic enough for you to put some filters on?

Well, we have an email confirmation in place already.  Problem is, Spambots get smarter and smarter.  We're talking about putting manual confirmation in place (i.e., the mods have to individually approve accounts, which will suck for anyone who actually wants to just register and get going, but...  It would let us block the obvious spambots.  And since they're usually "fire and forget" accounts, by the time we approve, they'll have moved on even if we accidentally approve a spam account.
