Shane, here's an idea, make it harder for bots to make accounts, this one posted with scam within minutes of signing up. Add a captcha to account creation and all the forum's spambot troubles will magically be gone.

Spammer deleted :)

We did have a captcha system on registration but unfortunately they can still get through. Captcha systems are more of a annoyance to end users trying to work out what they need to type in then they are to spammers. We have multiple layers of spam prevention already in place on the site and whilst it does it's job most of the time (it's constantly catching spam accounts and banning them) some do slip through.

Oh wow, Shane, those must be some crafty Spambots. I'm glad that we have several filters in place already though =D
