It'd be nice if something was actually done about it instead of relying on moderators to delete all this crap. This isn't new and it happens quite often.

I think they are human but they post bot-like messages. The way this website's capcha works is not really solvable by a bot (captcha does not appear anywhere on the page but rather a link to a static image).

I will update it today with another home made captcha

They seem to be coming from people with "fifa" in their name. Auto ban all that try and create an account with fifa in their name.

funny how this post is from a spambot too, wonder what was the point of posting this instead of regular viagr a spam?

I enabled reCaptcha, should help

Might be a human behind a program and that's their test message. Testing if first posts are blocked by leaving a post.
Like email block tests on the lines of "Am I blocked" with a tracker in it. If the tracker never goes through you have your answer.
