Default Spammers ???

Anyone noticed that there's at least one or two new members joining every day with user names containing random numbers, letters and symbols.
It's been going on for weeks now, probably from the same source and I suspect the forum will soon be inundated with spam posts and other crap..

Never fear someone is on the case. There are literally hundreds trying to register every day/week,and unless you sit at the pc 24/7 its impossible to block them all.

I see that the main forum page says we have over 11000 members but the actual members list only shows 1451 ?
Am I correct in thinking that the extra 9000 and odd are all the registered but blocked scumbags as I notice all the recent additions I've seen aren't on the members list including "bannataetts9907" who's currently showing as the newest member.
