I was horrified this morning. There were like 2 pages of spam. Being in Canada, I was probably one of the first to see it.

Maybe an admin can temporarily disable new user registrations until they can figure out how to stop them.

Part of the problem is that there are some already registered accounts to bots, and they suddenly wake up and drop a ton of spam on the forum.

We're working on them.
