However a SpamBot can and they do - my stats show than a spambot often does it in 1 to 2 seconds and then they post spam that the moderators have to delete and then the moderators have to ban them.

We've always had an interface that checks a new members username, email address and ip address against a database of known spammers and they would get blocked - but this add-on heads them off first and oh yes - then it redirects to the Getalife.com LOL

by the way - between 10:22 am on 5/16/13 and 9 am on 5/17/13 we blocked 94 spambots from registering here and possibly exposing you to their great deals on Cell Phones, Viagra etc...LOL

I would "like" your post, but the like button seems to be gone. Is it just me or did you take it away? Say it ain't so! I "like" the like!

Ha! I think that was in response to me reporting Jeff for not putting his updates in the appropriate forum (knowing that he sees reported messages).
