I know ver 2.0.11 had the validation code but one Adult forum I manage still gets people registering just to get a link. I know I can block memberlist.php with robots.txt but I want to prevent it rather than cure it so I don't have to delete these idiots accounts every day.
the thing is, even without the link showing, these idiots still register at the forum. i'm not sure why other than it's probably automated and i'm on a list somewhere...
I have run a commuinity for about 3 years - and tested several ways of running it - I found that if I blocked people using urls that I lost the professionals who were good posters ... because they at least got some recognition / branding if I let them post their urls
It can only add value really to your fourm - unless they are posting links to another fourm
