    I think that the spammers are somehow working around this because the system you've put in doesn't seem to be keeping up as much. I'm noticing quite a few more than it was first put in place.

    The 'bots' that I see on the homepage now are harder to spot. When I go onto the admin panel and look at their profiles the email addresses they use are more realistic and the names are no longer jibberish, or at least they make more sense. The only way I can really tell now is that some have changed their signatures to some kind of advertising before they have even confirmed the email. I imagine that these are the few left over from your security measures but they aren't spammers like they used to be, they're here purely for advertising.

    Oh and might I add we seem to be attracting more Japanese emails, which I thought was odd since I haven't seen ANY Japanese email addresses prior to the your changes.

    The changes wouldn't have made Japanese spammers come to the forums, but they would block most of the bots. Perhaps the Japanese bots/advertisers are the ones left over that can somehow get pass the security

    Maybe it's just something I noticed on the off chance then, before it was easy to spot them because the names made no sense whatsoever and their emails were littered with fullstops so I wouldn't really pay attention to the country code at the end.

    Well, there are two kinds of spammers. Bots, and real people taking the time to post spam on various forums/blogs they find. This program will block the bots, and the real people who try to hack the forums or do ANYTHING suspicious but as far as normal users.. It won't block them as if it did it would start blocking everyone and we can't have that.

    The ones leftover are likely either real people trying to spam the forums or bots that have slipped through the detection process.
