Yeah, I know. I just looked and there are HUNDREDS of people who haven't even posted once! (It was a little hard to find out because there hasn't been a post count since the Total Mayham Spam War...)

Well, that has been a problem for the whole time for just about all forums, as far as I can tell.

I don't really mind if there are non-posting accounts, but commercial spammers are somewhat annoying. Regular annoying-user spammers are worse, though.

Those show up pretty often. They will be gone before long.

there's quite an easy solution to this. Another forum I go to did this, although an admin is needed. Jamul, if you don't wish to have these bots of doom bother hamumu forums with their commercial spam, simply change profile.php and viewtopic.php to something else, like bouapha.php and drlunatic.php or something. :\ if you can that is, i've seen it done for other phpBB forums, so I think you should be able to...

not if you change posting, viewtopic, and profile.php into something else. 99% of spambots can't do that. they only can post if there's viewtopic, profile, and posting.php.
