A few bots have started posting in the last few days.
I'm pretty sure there are a few ways we could go about dealing with them.
Here's one that I found after a few very quick search. It's a vBulletin add-on called "Is Bot".
The point is to try and prevent bots from registering at your forum when the time between the two pages is humanly impossible, assuming that humans actually take the time to complete the registration page.
Should a user be blocked from registering at your forum, an email will be sent to your vB webmasteremail address and the user will see the vB noregister phrase message, so no screenshot is necessary.
Oh, Akismet is amazing. I didn't know there was a vB version available.
I can definitely recommend using that.
I didn't see any bots post. Mods must've did a pretty good cleanup job.
I saw some bot posts a few days ago, but they got cleaned up pretty quick.
I agree with the suggestion tho!
This is a bot post. Selling ipad 3 for 2899$. Secret beta product stolen from apple, BUY NOW at EvelsaintStolenIpad3.com!
*Oh shiz, the mods are coming! Argghhh!
*Knocked dead with the Ban Hammer
I have nothing better to do with my time than kill those adbots xD
With all the spam in the spam, all there is to do is watch for bots.
