Definate spammer, a job well done

I maintain that no geniune poster will give 2 hoots about their signup being banned, having registered, I would suggest they would actually care enough to use the 'contact us' feature asking why they were banned rather than just take it on the chin and never return.

Lets not forget genuine new users register for a reason, even if it is to grab from the zone or whatever.

Exactly

Also don't forget that when someone gets banned you need to give a reason. I usually write "Spam Account!!!" so if the person bothers to read the PM they would know exactly why (which spammers wouldn't but genuine people would).

if this is all automated on some kind of script (account creation) then how about changing the name of the register.php link to something different every few hours?

http://eab.abime.net/register.php to http://eab.abime.net/register1.php for example


Or have a question instead of the Captcha...

For example;

Type in the name of the game at the following (Random) link from the HOL database...

I think these things are a bit more complicated than that and they are not easily fooled.
