But there is some underlining problem with the registration itself. You deleted a friends account the other day, so I don't think this system is flawless…
Seth, remember how Cyber nabbed that first bot before anyone else really saw it? Think about what would happen if most of these bots got left there for a couple days. I don't want to clean up after that.
There is a new worm registering every 10 minutes. About 1/10 can't get past the registration. But that still leaves a lot of bots.
most likely they were already passed a certain point when you disabled it, allowing them to complete registration.
I usually delete them as they come in when I am online. I was a spark camp all day yesterday and this morning, so those 64 that you deleted all registered after I left yesterday morning, so we got 64 bots within 24 hours.
It is getting old, and as of now we can't really stop it. They are all different IP's so it's not like we can just ban a few and that's that.
It could have something to do with the updated server or something? We didn't have this problem up until the update.
(grant it, the CAPTCHA was not working, so perhaps people and bots couldn't get through. lol)
