Doesnt work, I had a problem with them and many more registering on my forums.

Solution...

Add a custom question on signup with only 1 answer that people will know.

Example:

"Whats the opposite of cold?"
answer: hot

100% spam stopped, signups, posts everything...

I would agree also. There is a mod for this also that shows a series of images and you have to chose which image the question is asking for.

How do you add a custom question? I have so many of those sites "joining" that I send all my time banning or deleting and haven't figured out how to keep them away!
Thanks

Adding domains doesn't seem to work. Is there some hack to make domains with wildcards work correctly, as IP banning does?

Its in your admin section, under vBulletin Options / Human Verification Manager

check off "Question & Answer Verification"

make a question and answer there.

On mine they still try to sign up, but they cant get in. Saves having to delete posts, ban users etc. As long as they dont get in, I could care less if they keep trying. Eventually they'll remove you from the list of sites to spam.
