    Over the past like month or so I have noticed an increase of spam registrations coming from the same email @Laposte.net

    Has anyone ever had spammers register with that email?

    It seems to be from a scammer using a French cell phone company. It could be a good idea to ban his IP.
    If you can give me his/her IP I will do some further checking.
    A copy of one of the scam emails is below:

    I was going to say Brandon that might be because you use XF and I use IPB, but i see CM30 uses IPB as well, so ehh....*shrug*

    It is quite annoying but thankfully, my staff is usually on top of it

    The ips usually come from various different ips, never the same.

    @Micah how do I ban laposte.net from registrations exactly? They are quite active signing up at my site and I believe they got my email address and are using it. I changed the password last night but would like to ban the entire laposte.net from registering on my site. Any suggestions?
