Forums are one of the main targets of spammers. Ever since I have started this forum, I have got many spam registrations. But, since I have been working online for more than 5.5 years now, I always check the IP and email address on Google to find out the traces of spam. If everything is clear, I activate the account.
While searching on Google, I have found a Website StopForumSpam which is very nice, and list all the Forum Spammers with their IP, and email addresses used to signup on the various forums.
So, if you are running a forum, you must check suspicious email ids on Google as well as on stopforumspam site as well to find out whether the users are genuine or not.
It's a good way to stay safe from spam on your Forum site.
Hope this helps!
