There's this one spam bot that creates literally 20 or so accounts on my forum a day, always with messed up usernames like "tL304Lohanc" but it never posts. Occasionally, like once a month, it will succeed in posting 4 seemingly normal posts, always 4 posts (except the one time my moderators got to him after his second post and stopped him). And these posts are almost legitimigate, if it weren't for the fact that it's signature didn't have links to either a fake pirate site where the bot claims you can illegally download Call of Duty: Black Ops or get free acres of free land in the Chicago metropolitan area. So how can I stop this thing? I would have IP banned it on day one, but there was a problem with the IP banning system, I'm not sure if it works now, I'll go check.
