Looks like someone has been spamming up the UP boards. Can these people be blocked?

I'm looking into the issue to prevent it in the future. Spammers have always been a problem here but this is CRAZY!!!

As a fellow IT worker, I can appreciate what you have to go through. Definitely not a fun problem to deal with. Looks like you have this under control now. Thanks!

You're quite welcome! I can't begin to apologize enough. The spam count was so high that our email server was also blacklisted by Google due to the sheer number of account validation emails going out. Since we host our email with Google (Google Apps) this meant that I had no idea the spam issue was occurring.

I guess the spam bots have gotten overwhelmingly good at account registrations these days. :cry:
