What's with this XenuAntiSpamb poster? Is he/she legit?

I don't know if bots are still a problem and even if they are, I don't know if you'd have the ability to do this, but a pretty effective anti-bot strategy is to put a hidden field on the registration form and reject any submissions that have it filled in (it's more effective if the hidden attribute comes from a CSS class defined in a separate file).

I don't want to turn away any legitimate users, but I suspect that some of our more recent joiners are bots...

I've looked at least one of them and couldn't tell for sure. (I didn't see any obvious signs, but I did look quickly.)

I looked up the three who have joined after January 1st of this year. Their IP addresses come back to India and Pakistan.

I know that our newest member, Rj158Zmonp, is a bot - reason I haven't deleted it yet is that I'm waiting to see if it'll make a spam post somewhere, and I'm just curious what sort of crap it'll be pushing.

Of course, if any of you get impatient and just want to delete the thing, I won't stand in your way :D

I deleted one the other day, but we can see what this one will do. Or delete it soon. Whichever. :D
