New form of spam in the forums

In the recent hours someone (or something) has spawned dozens of new accounts (few words linked together and a few numebers on the end, e.g. paupearlinkting1618 ). Usually these accounts just copy some older messages. Most of the time they look like actual questions or replies, so it would be hard to fight. Not sure why someone will do this, obviously not for the money. This is just an attack to flood the forums.. I have disabled account registration for now. Will wait for a day or two and disable all the recent accounts with the same pattern.
