Definitely. These registrations must be done by machine, surely?

Jeniffer Banned! :guns:

The new registration for this board requires you to type in the letters and numbers that you see fuzzed out in a little box. Few bots can do this right now so it may be some group of people paid to spam our board.

The latest "member", LongHornInvest, seems to be only interested in making money.

Considering some of the more recent "members", it could be worse.....At least it's not "LongPornInvest" :evil:

It's amazing that I've just spotted the same spammer (group?) in another message board I frequent.

They may be taking advantage of some backdoor in PHPBB. I enabled Admin confirmation for new accounts so this should help a little bit. Thanks!

aarunn_jay is back, although there aren't any links in his profile. Incidentally, I also noticed that LonghornInvest was back soon after being banned yesterday, but he/she too didn't carry any links.

I noticed, too, that aarunn_jay had returned. I was curious how he managed to be the newest member all over again. :?
