Default Do something about the spammers?

Can a MOD do something about the spammers. It's just getting ridiculous and out of hand.

@Nachen -

Yes we did.

Completely open to suggestions - but for right now, the only option we have available is to increase time between PMs. Not sure which is more annoying - the spam or the time limit.

We have been checking out available anti-pm-spam plugins, but haven't settled on one yet.

We have also been checking out spammer IPs - some of these IPs are associated with some long term members; it will be very disappointing if we find that some of these long term members are creating new accounts for purposes of spamming other members...

But 600 seconds is rather draconian - reduced it.

600 second PM time is just ridiculous. Why not use a new captcha upon registeration? I don't think these are BOTS, this is just someone who is in a desperate need in a link exchange.
