I tried disabling new registrations to deal with the current influx of spambots, but unfortunately either it doesn't work or I've done something wrong, because they are still apparently registering.

I will keep on top of it for the next few hours, but if dr.bob hasn't seen his emails by the time I go to bed, and the spammers are still registering, I will have to shut the forums down again overnight my time, which means from about 4am until at least noon UK time.

Take this as a warning - if you find them disabled tomorrow, that will be why!

I've been deleting spambots at a rate of a couple every five minutes or so all evening, and at some point I have to go to sleep! I don't want to leave it wide open for a denial of service attack like we had at the weekend, so I will shut the forums down in about an hour. Unless dr.bob gets in to open them sooner, I will reopen them around 8am my time tomorrow, which would be about 1pm UK time.
