spam on the memberlist

Hi!

During my registration I saw that there is spam in the memberlist. I just got it, because I know this problem from an other forum, where I've been mod myself.
Some nicks are just registrated to publish spam-web-adresses on the memberlist. Sometimes they have suspect names or email-adresses, but they never write anything to the forum.

For example

#138 M_Johnson ->
#143 Patricia-Jackson ->
#148 JohCarter ->
...

I hate spam

Yes there are some spam-bots, but I think it is still no real problem. They "post" very few and every post of them is clearly recognizable as a spam-post...

Hi,
I am currently cleaning up the database from those spam accounts.

You mean an upcoming site about facelifts and skin products?

Why not.?! Probably only a private sub-page on a greater commercial one...
