Spam registrations and Yahoo accounts

Today I deleted a load of obvious spam registrations, all made with Yahoo accounts in the last couple of days, if I've deleted any real people by mistake - sorry you'll need to re-register

If this level of fake registrations keeps up I may need to start doing some extra validation for new accounts.

Re: Spam registrations and Yahoo accounts

Yes I may have to go for something like that, but even reCaptcha isnt perfect
All these new accounts were stuffing the signature field with SEO links and/or posting spam.
