There actually is a way to turn off the ability for guests to post on the boards. But you need admin or possibly moderator equivalent power to do so (don't know how much overall authority mods have over things like that.)
Considerin that RT, Woz, and now Reds are not on 24 hours a day, it would get pretty out of hand, not to mention damn hard. Considering that all of US would have to apply to, along with the hordes of conscripts...
Well, with over 2450 members, that's going to get out of hand...
What about the human verification system that other places use? (Like the one I failed 10 times >.>)

I'm not sure what Proboards can handle in terms of verification processes, actually. That said though, if you do see a bot, PM me and I'll delete the posts or change them to something amusing or useful.

Okay, just an update on the Spambot front.
They do seem to target the RP Section a lot. I just killed three posts literally as they were being posted, and nabbed another one a while back a few minutes after it went up. Kai's threads seem to be the popular target.

I have seen something done... When the "person fills out all the info name DoB etc, the magic question is "what is your favourite colour?" any spam bots answer their name...there fore they were not accepted. It does mean that anybody that tries to register it will be up to the admin to accept them or not but it works.
