SexyPP234 a real member?

I see that we have a new member today. "SexyPP234" seems to have an odd profile. Could this be some kinda Bot? Perhaps just an open minded and willing to share individual?

You've been napping.

I get about four to seven bogus signups per week, and they always post a website in their profile. Once in a while they also post a reply to an existing topic, usually saying something like "Cool" or "Really?". Then you read the reply and see their website link in their sig.

I just delete them as I see them, usually once a day. The newer software version will let me tighten up the "captcha" verification to a stricter level, but the sure-fire fix would be to disallow website listings in a Profile until someone has posted ten msgs or something, but this could lead to worse problems.

For now, I just delete them manually.
