Just a little udate on the issue for those concerned. Have kept an eye on the email-addresses of the spammers lately, it's crazy how many spam-mailservers there are out there....
For example a recent one signed up using dsfgt@ list.ru
The point being one would basically have to put a ban on Russia entirely in order to stop that sort of spam, sooner or later no one would be able to sign up, since that one from russia was just an example.
It sure seems like the spam is originating fro the same source, right? Well, sadly enough it isnt. We better just hope for better working laws against spam, the bad side of that solution is that laws affecting internet-"freedom" could have downsides to them
There's an option to use word-filters, but it wouldn't do much good, basically it would just replace words, I.E "Fuck You" ---> "Love you", and leave the topic itself inplace.
Yet another option is to try and ban certain usernames, I.E blablabla... or even blablabla...*, stopping anyone from signing up using a name with blablabla... in it. However the spammers have adaptedpretty well to most "filters" during the years, making it often impossible to tell if a random username is a spammer or not.
If anyone knows about any effective solutions please bring it forward, until then we'll just have to relax, ignore it tl it gets removed, and hope it's in relatio to increased traffic overall, which I hope nobody minds
edit: fixed some missing letters, I need to buy a new keyboard, this cheap one turned out to e a nightmare, have to sla it with a hammer for keypreses to register...as you can see from what I just wrote *sigh*
