They're seriously annoying. I understand someone is probably deleting them on a daily basis or something, but if you want I could give you the code I use for my phpbb forums which keeps all automated spambots away (no captchas or anything, invisible to regular users).

I subscribe to the RSS and they do show up.

Get in touch with Xkeeper, he's the one taking care of that side of things. He incorporated some anti-spambot code a few months ago, and for a while there was a definite lull in spambot registrations, but I've noticed they've picked up lately, too.

If not for spambots, we wouldn't have new posts Sad

The 600 series had rubber skin. We spotted them easy, but these are new. They look human... sweat, bad breath, everything. Very hard to spot. I had to wait till he moved on you before I could zero him.
