Those crappy bots are spamming all areas for newbies(Language-specific and Newbies Area).
There is anything theymos can do to stop these trolls?

We've always been battling them since some time ago -they're the bitcointalks and the mtgix scamming group.

You get them on every single forum unfortunately, it's a universal problem that no one has found a real solution for yet.

IP banning tornodes and open proxies works great.

I'd like to be able to better admin tools personally, nothing worse than having 32 spammers popping up all over the place and having to single click them all to get rid of them Sad

phpbb3 supports that out of the box. Just paste a list of names into the moderator console, click ban button, goodbye.

Problem is they pop up faster than those whack-a-mole moles. It's a PITA whacking all in time.

I don't know if SMF supports this but one method that people have reported great success with is disabling the ability to post external links for new users. Bot tries to send its message, it doesn't go through due to the spammers link, bot sits there not knowing what to do.

and they'll just use tricks to bypass the url filter like

hxxp:/ /spa msite. com

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

A bot coded and/or used by a donkey would probably work the way you describe Cheesy
