You're saying hello and welcome to bots and scripted posts. Foreigners who are paid to spam various fora with scripts that include advertising in their signature line.

Not sure they are spammers.  It's an SEO tactic.

i use a version of this forums software for my mud's forums, and i think to date i've had 0 spammers!  Its all about the questions you ask on account creation :)

When i ran the godwars.net forums site, we used to get 1000's of new spam signups, but as soon as i put a question regarding MUD in the sign-up process, we got exactly 0 new spam sign-ups.

Did you see the links in their taglines, though? They're definitely bots and advertisers.

Hmm, yeah, maybe you're right.

That's a great idea I hadn't thought about. We have the standard Capcha but still get a lot of bogus signups.
