Why Has There Been So Much Spam Here Recently?

Seriously, something badly needs to be done about this. 6 of the last 10 new members have been bots.

It's this same bot that keeps getting new IPs and can somehow get past my filtering. I really don't know how it's getting through. For now I'm going to restrict the "new members" group from posting links or images and just manually approve accounts that look like real people.

.. You misunderstood. I'm not manually verifying registrations. I'm verifying users for the ability to post links. Please stop trying to tell me how to do my job now.
