It looks like they joined SS months ago and waited to spam the board. Why would they do that?

As Britts did in WW2 when they captured the Enigma machine....a few corps more to send home as peasant sacrifice.
Who cares?

We already require that they answer a few basic questions and have a working e-mail address that we send a confirmation link to. This eliminates most of the "robo-spam", but if someone is patient and persistent, they can still get thru.

This is why we have system admins and moderators...

Yes, I've noticed in the past that the spammers register, then wait a few weeks or months, and then drop the spam bombs. Weird... I almost think the spammers pay folks in sweatshops or 3rd world countries to register to forums sites and send them their login/password. Then the spammers save them up for one big spam dump and run blast. Only way to defeat the anti-spam countermeasures on most sites.
