Yeah, even with a good spam blocker, we get the occasional automated spam bot that seemingly messes things up with phantom registrations, etc.

Sometimes I've even seen an email address so long that it appears our error log has disappeared when in reality it's simply stretched really wide. Even though this hasn't adversely affected our site, those kind of attempted registrations are the ones I put an IP address block on.

One of these days I'll need to educate myself on how to use YaBB's mods 'cause Derek's anti-spam mod sounds great, and is evidently pretty effective. Meanwhile, I'll have to stick to the simple captcha change that I implemented since it continues to stop all spam bots.
