    captcha system upon confirming email or something?


    They beat reCaptcha on sign up, probably using decaptcher.

    So probably wouldn't help and would make annoyances for real members. Nice suggestion though.

    We now have a reverse DNS (proved here: http://intodns.com/ibotmodz.net) , so our mail should be delivered everywhere. I've re-enabled "email validation" during registration.

    I hope bots can't validate their emails.

    k, update. When you see a spam post, I know you want to comment on it and make fun of the spammer, but it makes our (the staff's) job a lot easier if you report it instead. (So that we don't have to go "hunting" for spam)
