    Funnily enough I had my first yesterday, guy has hundreds of profile pages in google. I have email confirmation turned on as well CAPTCHA so he wasn't getting past it.

    thats alot of threads on forums in the space of a few seconds/minutes.

    the other day two more registered with the names of LClan439 and Shemker394. (their names mentioned on another thread) with the emails of freestuff01 & freestuff02

    their IP was 74.52.58.210/host: d2.3a.344a.static.theplanet.com

    i have actually seen this IP before of the guest lurker, a few weeks back.

    also watch out for this IP if whoever has/might of already registered on your message board.

    IP: 70.229.91.166/ Host: ppp-70-229-91-166.dsl.chgil.ameritech.net

    they didn't register in the end but three guest of the same IP appeared to be registering, but keep an eye out anyway.

    Dr.H :

    This person has a bunch of myspace adds in their sig(guess they never read the forum policy) and started a thread about "Eh, PM box full?" stating that they were a new member and they couldn't pm because it said their pm box was full..

    BebopVT posted the same thread on my site; so I decided to a Google search for "Eh, PM box full?" and thousands of board threads showed-up; all posted by BebopVT on the same day.

    Hey guys,

    I have the same moron on my board...

    oh and watch out for AZNProd32
    using the email aznprodATcamefromblueinfo

    He came on right after BeBopVT.

    Has anyone figured out how they are doing it? Yeah... I keep hearing about the ASCI code thang but I've not heard anyone say it's for sure OR... more importantly... how the heck to stop them from doing it again!

    Is it me, or does this seem like a new probem??

    birthdate of January 1st 1980

    this one has just newly registered on the forum i moderate. it's not confirmed itself yet.
    Hah I had him too. It would be cool if there was a thread here listing all the spammers but it would probably be 100's of pages long..

    oh yeah, and those two bots even registered at the same time.

    they or the "people" running them probably get mad, most of the time these bots seem to have sigs touting their stuff like nike trainers, Myspace stuff and a few others.

    this afternoon i noticed two bots registered using the names applesours & onlinehoster with the same email, tradedoubling.co.uk i noticed they registered on another Vbulletin forum aswell.
    Lol they just joined my forum as well.. They both had the same IP too. It seems all my recent spammers/bots have Jan 1 1980 birthdays too.

    I wonder if these spammers get ticked off when you delete and block them, because while I use to rarely get them and had a few that were in my member list..it seems since I cleaned them out of my forum I'm getting more and more. I had 5 today that were stopped at the mail conformation and I deleted them.

    I now search the new users names on google and if their members of 100's of forums I'm pretty sure their fake.. lol I know I couldn't handle being a member of more than a few forums at a time and still hold down a job.

    I think this guy in particular is trying to be tricky with me and re registered today with a new name and email(.info email.. whats with that) but the same birthday, western Europe timezone and a very similar RoadRunner VA IP.. I would have thought a RoadRunner IP (ARIN's WHOIS)would be safe..

    My night admin checked into it and found no pm problems with the system so pm'ed the member about it then deleted the post.
    This morn I saw the same post with the same exact words posted again, I deleted it and emailed the member a warning. A few hours later same post by the same member again, so I put them in a moderated grouping and emailed them again. This time I looked into their noobrock.com email address and couldn't find anthing about it then I googled their user name "Bebopvt" and found the name was a member of tons of forum with the same bunch of myspace add in their sig.

    I was wondering if anyone else has seen this guy and what you think he might be up to?

    Should I delete and ban him right away.

    Also I was looking at his post on my laptop before I deleted it and like 30 popups of the same window came out of no where before I could stop msn's progress. I'm not sure if there was something in the post or if my wife picked up something so I'm scanning the laptop now.
    christ, this guy is registered on the forum i moderate. he posted that thread in announcements so moved it to feedback.

    Thanks guys I understand what you mean now.
    After looking into my list of non active members and members awaiting email confirmation I found a few more spammers hiding in there, luckily this one was the only one to make any posts as of yet.
    I followed some hints I found searching here as to slow them down and I hope all is well from this point on.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks I was pulling a blank at the name of it. I would love to see a "banned URL" list. Then it can be blocked at any level.

    Delete and ban e-mail domain, username, IP, block URL (using bad word block). Pure spammer.
