Thanks Rob, I also removed hundreds yesterday and banned the accounts that had created them. They got by the security query, I'll have to change it shortly as once it's been compromised the solutions are posted in spammers' data sources. TWATS. :evil:

*Edit* I've just deleted all dodgy new registrations since 5th May and changed the registration query, hopefully that will keep the spamming twats out for a while.
