Visible spam is one thing, spam that has to be dug for is something else. I suppose we could delete all users with 0 posts, which will catch all of this kind. I'm pretty sure we can sort by post count. I don't know if there is an auto delete option if they don't post within a certain period. Say ten days from registration.

buyphentermineBGJ

also

the problem with deleting zero use posters is so many register just to view the board without posting... remember not all areas are visible to non registered visitors as it was before last year's crash.

it's possible the owners of the machines this spam is coming from don't even know about it - some viruses use "zombie" systems to distrubute themselves via spam.
