These Spambots are out of control, this website needs a captcha for registering.

.. and those are just the ones I've banned between going to bed and 8am this morning, not including any yesterday.

It appears to be one person, setting them up semi-manually so bot filtering wont work. Can't see what IP or email services he's using from my end. So some sort of shadowban, geofilter, or new account delay for anything suspiciously close?

http://www.carmageddon.com/users/trrtkjgkfj <- maybe a bit thought-crime'y but I banned this one temporarily 1 minute after creation as it seemed to fit the spammers pattern even though it had no posts. I'll happily apologise to the user if it turns out to be legit which I really doubt.

I doubt it's legit with a username like that

I that the only way of stoping spam bots is to put a captcha for new posts
It may be a human making the accounts but the posts are definitely robots

if cars aren't meant to crash why do they have air bags?
