Possible Senders of Spam

Hi All
Just a heds up to those who have a Forum or Message Bord or Website, there is an individual going around and they are joining all kinds of forums, message bords & websites.
He joined our forum DHEA Community Forum and slipped through the cracks some how, but is now banned.  Joined us on 8th May 2008 & Banned on 8th May 2008.
I did a search on Google for this individual's email addy:
poch @ tigermoon.ru and found several "possible spam" topics and a ton of message forums this person was joining. 
His full details are:
Email: poch @ tigermoon.ru
Hostname: rigas57a.wl.client.microlink.lv
IP: 195.2.114.20
Just wanted to throw this out there to all, just in case.
You can get more information from Stop Forum Spam.

This is more likely to be an automated bot which signs up and spams forums rather than an individual. Quite common and often the way to stop this activity is to implement something like CAPTCHA during the sign-up process.
