  • [Forum] Having Problem with Spammer(s) and/or Bot(s)

    Hey Guys, I was just wondering if anyone can help me with making it so that this person(s) can't join anymore. I don't know if it's a bot or just a person with way to much time on their hands. Anyway, here's what's happening; a person or bot keeps signing up under 2 similar email addresses. It's either something like this:

    For the 2nd one, it's any 3 numbers in the beginning. For the first one, it's any combo of letters with dots. This person or bot just keeps signing up on like 7 accounts per day and just puts links to websites in their user profile and home pages and stuff. I don't know hot to get rid of them or it for good. It's different IP's every time, so IP banning won't work. I really don't want to just keep deleting the users. Please help, thanks.
