    what ever was put in place, it appears the spammers found away around it.

    Still doesn't make their threads disappear, so yeah...

    I t would be that simple in an ideal world, but no it only stops that one account... This entity gets one profile banned a day but,.. they make another account the very next day probably using the same IP address and certainly the same MAC addresses! Thus all you do in reality is just block a single bot account that will just be banned eventually rendering your effort pointless!

    The spammer makes all his posts with the same account. bggn. Worst case it would hide all his posts during the week-end when there's no moderation.

    It's most likely a spam bot (controlled by a spammer or group of spammers).
    They usually have another bot to verify the spam is loaded on websites (like the forum) – so they can check their spam was successfully stored (and not deleted).

    The account name is fairly randomized and it will automatically change, especially if that account is blocked.

    Muting the spammer's account is not going to be very successful, since it will change frequently.
    It shouldn't be the responsibility of individual members to constantly play "catch up" in muting the spam accounts. Many anti-spam measures exist for forum software ... adding a CAPTCHA to the registration process would be a start. IP blocking can help, but any 'pro' spammer will use multiple IP addresses etc.

    A lot was already said here (back in February):
