Sorry for necro-ing this thread. Its a bit better to not have multiples I think.
We've had a few sapmmy accounts crop up recently.
So far we've had:
Posting into random threads, and there replies have added nothing. quite literally one line of text which doesn't really make much sense in the context of the thread.
While they have nudged a few threads back into the Unread page, they're not exactly adding anything.
I've split the replies out of threads and deleted them in the contest board. The accounts don't seem to get used beyond the initial two post spam, so I'd assume they're spam-bots, of some kind. Not sure what can be done though.
Something to note in the Members list is that there are tonnes of accounts set up with zero posts, from as far back as January. Is it possible to set-up a cleanup program to automatically delete/ban a profile if it isn't posted from? I can understand if that can't be done however.
