*Facepalm* Urgh... So, we have this forum all set up for our company. Guess who the first 40 or so users that signed up were?

Spam bots are far worse than the common cold.

What board software are you using? Don't they all have captcha's? I thought bots couldn't decipher those. Wouldn't surprise me if they can do it now I suppose.

I think we're using phpBB. While it does sport captcha, it's entirely plausible that a small army of sweat shop spammers created the 40 or so accounts.

The concept of sweat shop spammers appeals to me greatly.

"ACCOUNT MAKE NOW WORK HARDER! CAPTCHA?! I NO KNOW CAPTCHA! WHAT YOU SAY? TYPE! TYPE TYPE TYPE! YOU WILL SEE!"
