Less spammers is always a good thing! Some months ago there was an attack I seen late night...It's always good to see them go poof!
It's kinda funny how simple they can be, for that reason. Some people have had success literally just renaming the registration file.

Thankfully, these things are dumb and only worth doing if they're doing en masse, indiscriminately. It's not worth their time to try to make exceptions for individual sites, they just look for a certain software type and then run set instructions, which is why the countermeasures can be so effective.
It's a clever little thing: it just blocks registration if the submission comes within 15 seconds of the start of the process, since bots are basically instant and humans never complete it that fast.

Mod seems to be working great. Cool. Might adjust, might run into other types, but for now, great.
Just installed a mod that might help with spambots (not that most of them do much more than register). So far so good.
Online shopping got its hooks into me with all the free packaging I got out of it for my burgeoning eBay empire

Hey. Some people just wanna watch the world burn. *smile + sneer* = :smeer:
