It is a bot (advertisement signature is dead givaway) who just now posted in my welcoming thread about being new here. XD I never knew internet ad-bots were both furries AND Christian, that is like a double shocker. Joking aside, just pointing this out.

Well, I think you have to install some sort of script or something to prevent those from making accounts. I just took a look on wiki about it but it saids:

"One way to prevent spambots from posting on forums, wiki, guestbook, etc. is to enable e-mail activation by installing a mail server on the host (eg: Sendmail, Postfix, Exim.), since most spambot scripts use fake or randomly generated names on real e-mail providers, the e-mails will mostly never be successfully routed to them, although this has eventually been circumvented, since it is of trivial matter for spammers to automatically register an email address and use it for validation, mostly via webmail services."

But I wouldn't know too much, I'm just throwing that out there in case it'd be useful to prevent it

We use email activation as well as image verification. So, they're using real emails and such.

Looks like the spammer is back in the galleries. uggscat has been leaving advertisement comments, I've seen them on ShinDarkfox's uploads. Geez, these people are persistent to sell something or give someone a virus. o__o;;
