I've had a lot of trouble with spam bots in the past from my extensive forum mod experience (on several forums), for the most part captcha or similar on sign-ups used to get rid of most of them, but not all. They've a pain and I've yet to find a proper way around them (other than captcha codes on every post which is just a pain in the arse).

Hopefully you've scared them off thought. :D
