I run a forum (actually, I'm about to) and I have few spam bots that register everyday and it takes time to remove them manually.
I went to a website where they offer a plugin that automatically would detect a spam bot by silently checking in their DB.
Its all nice, but I wonder if there's a chance that if they use IPs to track the bots, then what if some legit person will use that same IP to register. I mean, I doubt that all forum spam bots use and keep forever the same IP addresses...
