perhaps someone could at least apply a filter that does not allow 2 capital letters in the new (spam bot) username as the latest wave of spam seems to show this pattern e.g of usernames == "AgathaBowling ; GordonLee8 " , you get the picture, whereas most normal users will only opt for 1 capital in their name. This would at least cut the spam down a bit imo.  Tobydox gave me Admin rights to the wiki where i can delete the junk and ban the users, im staying on top of it as i have time to do this but it is time that could be spent doing something more productive for the LMMS project...
