They're always changing IP addresses - The various anti-spam mods do work well in keeping them from registering at all. (Fills up your error log, but hey, that's better than having to go back and remove them all the time, right?)

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Spammers, (what's new?)

I delete dubious 'New Members' on a daily basis at a rate of about 3 to 6 each day.  Since I started the board in April, I have deleted 412 spammers.  All of them never get any further than just registering because they use a phony email address and of course don't get a password to access.  How many IP's do I have to ban by the time they are all banned?  Is there a master list somewhere?
