I say we build a wall and get the spammers to pay for it.

New registrations should be monitored by our moderators for the first few days to watch out for potential spam bots.

If the rest of you guys see these spams on our forums? Please send Zippo or the moderating team a pm just incase they missed the spam bots invading our site :D

So um, only a few weeks late .. but I have turned on new user registrations again.

I guess if we get spammed again, we can only turn it off
