Spammers What to do? I mean, except for the usual "Kill 'em all!&q

Oh sure, the mods can delete their posts where ever they pop up, but that won't solve the problem.
Sadly though, I can't really think of a good solution, try as I might. So if any of you can, this be the place where you may share your wisdom with us. Just hit "Reply", you know the drill.

Unfortunately I can't see that working for long if the accounts are signed up by people.
I thought of a new name for automated spammers.
They should be called The Spamulators

Another spamulator named Burn from the musical review to my brick wall oven thread and now to Hoffman's thread with three X's? What a stupid name to call a thread. Unless it related to discussion in that thread. Now another named Beckylue, and the same threads before seems to be a common target.
My vision, I dont know if it will work but if I can find one of these bots, take out of the spam modules and add an IRC module so I can post and read posts from a messaging client as realtime as possible.
I am going to message one of these spammers to see what happens. I am already prepared to receiving a 419 message.

They're always good for a laugh. Suppose its just a matter of hoping they've got one for Invision boards.
