User Signup IP Filter?

User Signup IP Filter?
So I was going through the banned account list out of curiosity and noticed a similar pattern to previous forums I've administered: APNIC (Asian-Pacific Network Information Centre) IP blocks make up the vast majority of the spam accounts. 061/8, 103/8, 114/8, etc. Does this forum software allow for IP filters on user registrations? Is that something we would want to possibly implement? Are we even expecting any legitimate signups from Austrailia, Korea, Japan, etc?

I think this is worth looking into. It seems like the current spam filters just aren't cutting it. I can only think of one or two signups that were ligit from those areas in years...People originally from this area that were overseas.

I'll talk to John and Dan about IP filtering. Thanks for bringing it up.

Also, people from those areas could always contact us via Facebook if needed.
