    Accounts like this, this, and this are spambots .
    They usually have ICQ as a messenger as well

    Gamer IDs

    You should just stop them

    1.Add a random form field to the join page if its not there , dont let them join , set it with javascript winsock bots wont execute it.
    2.Add noFollow html tag to profiles , this way its pointless them even having spam accounts (They only add them to put links on profiles usually and generate back links to there own sites wich improves google ranking.... Not sure if there spam bots check for this before joining. But no follow tags tell googles bots not to even look at there links.
    3. Add a custom captcha or a downloaded mod , just one thats not the standard one that comes with the forum will do.

    Think one of those should stop em.
