Re: Spam attack last night - new member registration closed temporarily

I would look at IP addresses of the bots and ban some IP ranges. On some of my forums I ban registrations from all of China, Russia and Ukraine (this of course depends on the forum). I use this vB plugin to select countries: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=198440

Also, vB plugins like Spam-o-matic are quite useful.
