    But dont you understand? Not many people care about the ban list. Also, such an action may slow the database down?

    You know john, I looked up the etymology of your name. Did you know it's a derivative of vacillate? Pick up that Coat of Arms and proceed bravely, yet, blithely, forward. Never hesitate, never swerve in your unwavering pursuit of ignorance.

    The spammers in that list have already been banned (see ban list).

    We are on older software, and spammer's software updates a few times a month.

    Take Scrapebox for instance. You pay 50$, buy a few private proxies, pay for anti-captcha and you can spam thousands of forums day. Anyone can learn to do it with half a brain, a week's time, some cash, and youtube.

    The emergence of forum spamming software is gaining speed with forums like blackhatworld, making it easy for anyone to do. There is huge profit in Internet Marketing, so plenty of motivation for the spammers.

    An easy way to combat em is to upgrade the captcha.

    Instead of normal generated captcha code we can add a human element. Like "choose the picture of a worm" and have four different pictures of animals. Spam = gone.

    Until then, expect more and more spam over the coming years.
