Now that I have the power to ban people, I am going to war with the spam accounts.

Who am I kidding, there are almost 400,000 users and obviously most of them are spam accounts. It will take years to eliminate them all Sad

Looks like a job for a Perl script! Smile

I think the better option would be to first increase the way registration is handled... seems like the bots have no problem making accounts.

And wow! Since December, there have been an additional 160,000 accounts made!? That's insane.

Yeah, but most haven't ever posted because of our anti-spam measures. I occasionally go through the database and delete unconfirmed accounts and accounts older than a few months with zero posts.

I wonder how effective the registration captchas are now... I mean, you look at Reddit's meme bot, and it can read captchas no problem. Would an actual question be more secure? Just throwing some ideas out there.
