Well Staff Members have life too.

We do everything we can, unfortunately we can't do a lot.
Everything that can prevent spambots to register has already been activated: e-mail confirmation, dynamic images, ...
The only explanation is that someone is registering the bots and then left them do their job.

I usually ban the entire e-mail server instead of the e-mail address only, but admit that I cannot ban the entire hotmail or web.de network.

If this continues, I will probably disable the automatic registration, so accounts will be activated only after an Admin check. Unfortunately the truth is, that this will not help either, because it is sometimes impossible to say if this is a bot or not.

I know man,i forgot to add in my post that "I don't wanna stress them way too far"...

Yeah it's crap,i hate these spambots ruining ur fun days&holidays,our relaxing mood while on the forum.

However man,i just wanna say Good Luck on "destroying" these bots.

It happens in all popular forums, they dont do anything, but look for new sites to add to Google.

GoogleBot is only here to index the forums and to look for new content and updates.
This is just the way the google search engine works.

I have never said that I have prevent spambots to register.
