For a few days (weeks?) now I've encountered huge numbers of new registrations from .xyz domains. About 50% of them are immediately flagged by the Stop Forum Spam mod (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1519), but the rest get through. They're easy enough to nuke, but I'm just wondering of others are also seeing this?


You can add *.xyz email ban. That will stopt hose.
