There is a simple, free solution for the annoying problem

I dunno who's responsible for the forum support but integrating this into a registration script would solve the problem once and forever. Well, at least it would work until there is no neural nets with a sufficiently sofisticated AI out there :lol:

Some bots are already registered and post one or two day after registration, it will take a few day to see if there is any result.

Hi,

I have just finished blocking a serie of e-mail servers used by the bots and I deleted a lot of accounts. This will help to ;)
But some bots use gmail, hotmail or outlook adress... and I can't ban *@gmail/hotmail/outlook ^^'
