In progress Fake Users/ Spamming

Post by DesignersSociety on March 22nd 2013, 10:36 pm

The other day I noticed about 20 new members all right in a row and all had these really short emails like 1998@hotmail.com and bubble@hotmail.com and random usernames, some that were inappropriate. So I deleted them all and set it so no unappropriate usernames can be used, I still notice sometimes there are a few coming up like this so is there anything I can do? I kinda noticed too when I look on their time zone they all say copenhage, luxembourge, mardid so I kinda know what to look for now. So is there a better way to like secure the site from fake users or people spamming? Also I already have the security image set that they have to verify and when I tried to block the ip before it wouldn't show theirs.
