I hate to waste your time with information that doesn't contribute to MoMIME, but the reason these are made is so that google will index their user ids via the memberlist, and the memberlist will link to their pages increasing their google pagerank.

lol. No kidding.

That software Tino mentioned in that other thread aside, it may be time to pass out a couple of moderator titles.

Purging accounts is a no-win situation; they can always register. Blocking the actual posts is much more effective.

I usually run a 3-step protection:
- Cannot register with a URL in your site info. Can put one in later, just can't register with one. This cuts away most spambots and slightly inconveniences normal users.
- Block posts with 10 or more URLs in them.
- Akismet. If your post survives Akismet, it's good. If it doesn't, Akismet can be bypassed by extra user action.

Very rare for spam to get past that, and it only annoys a minor part of the regular users.

also, if he built in a verification thing before registration, he can also cut down on the auto spam bot creations too.

You're thinking of a . And yeah, they also stop most registrations, but I find them annoying so I try to use alternative methods or very simple CAPTCHAs.
