They've got the username field figured out again. Sad

I expected that, because when you enter the page, and analyse all field > fill in all basic fields + the one's not hidden and remain all hidden fields > submit the thing right away ... it is possible.

however if any field checked by the antispammod contains a dirty word the process is still killed ...

a time check ( howmany time spent on signup page ) would be a next step.

do you have many bots coming trough?

Well, I get at least 5-6 a day now. All but a couple have gotten nailed by the spam filter. It's not the flood like before, but they're definitely showing up.

what ACP tools do you have running to mass delete/ban your users?

Nothing really, other than your mod, the website mod, and the spamlogs mod I did for the spam mod. If I see 5 or more hits in the spam logs from the same IP, I ban it. Otherwise, I leave it alone.

As for the bots, it seems like the ones that got signed up never did anything, and the rest have stopped coming that I can tell. So the problem may have sorted itself out.
