Pete, I am aware of those usernames. So far, they havent done any harm, or any activity at all. They were all registered from a single subnet of certain Indonesian ADSL provider, which is rather curious.

The spam outbreaks are always done by a freshly registered username.

Deleting accounts is counter-productive, as that allows the spambot second round of spamming. Banning these accounts is better.
