To sign up and spam message boards and blogs.

They're usually stopped by using a simple CAPTCHA.

I hear that if you make your own captcha instead of the standard ones with boards, it is even harder for spammers to break it.

Usually it's better to go with a third party solution, like reCAPTCHA.

DJChris what did you base your bans on? A lot of times people will just sign up for bragging right. " I belong to 500 forums dude. Top that." That sort of stupid crap.
I'm gonna put you on to a couple of handy tools to double check your work with.
1. This on going thread at vbullentin.com > http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=275885
