There is no need to alert us - spam bots get deleted as soon as a mod or admin logs in.
My ongoing gratitude for your good work!

Yep. As we speak we're being attacked by those creeps. Kudos to those looking out for us. Here's evidence:

We have deleted the last month's worth of spammy accounts and enabled Google's recaptcha2 which should keep them at bay.

It seems then that spam bots are more advanced than Google's anti-spam system. Not much we can do but keep deleting them, I will purge the accounts on a monthly basis.

They seem to be few in number of bots but large in the amount of spam they are posting regarding selling a product to get around google spam detection. My guess is that a real person is registering and then pretending to be a bot to encourage sales of their fake product.
