Just lately ive been getting quite a few spam posts on my site 12-20 a week.My moderators are very much "On the ball" so i dont see many but they seem to be the same spam link every time so i can only presume its the same idiot using a different name i am sure its not a spambot because i have security measures and whoever is posting this has altered the viewing profile (Theme etc) and i havent known a spambot to do this.Also its always a different I.P address which is the real problem cause i cant just ban it.I have found a hack that bans anyone from jopining the site if they are coming from an open proxy server i dont know if these would give you a different ip everytime you used them but is it worth a try? Or is there another way?
PS : Spammers should all have there heads shaved with cheese graters.

I think it would be a good idea to block proxy IP's. It's defiantly worth a try, let me know what happens.
