How about something real simple. E-mail verification. Have VB send out the e-mail with a link to activate the account. Stay with the major players in e-mail like google or msn or even yahoo. Some applicants will have some sort of legit but odd address to verify. Small potato's in comparison to the trouble you're having now.
If you get an ass with a legit addy you can decode the e-mail header to get who it is and what ISP they're using.
Very little human intervention as VB has it built in. The e-mail conformation that is.

As for the spam patrol you have to be careful who you put in the drivers seat. Some one gets pissed off and they could remove legit posts and threads as well.

Think this through carefully. You may just open up a bigger can of worms.

Nice- I like it. But keep the 300 second rule. When do we ever need less time?

Why didn't we ever think of that?

I agree - something really needs to be done whether it's new mods or adjustments to the reporting system.

If Setishock would come on here often to check on things (which he has recently), he should be renominated as a modertor. I wonder why he stepped down in the first place?

maybe hes busy on his own forum.
being an admin on one and a mod on another (both busy forums) is hard work

how 'bout the pics that people post have to first be viewed by mods so if the pic is explicit or just wrong they (the mods) can just not allow them to post the pics

Nah, too much work for the mods. They're clearly too busy as it is.
