Canned Spam thrown out

Cleared out two spam accounts and blocked the IP address that made them. Kinda confused as to why the IP wasn’t banned to start with lol.

There are currently over 250 spam accounts. Some have unique IP addresses, and some share one with a few others. They are created at a rate of about 6 accounts a day. Banning them all individually is not really a feasible solution (not that I know what is).

Hmm… I smell a theme for the new Dynasty! Hackers trying to infect and enslave networks in order to send as much spam as possible…
