It appears as though our site has been hit with a massive amount of spam sign-ups for accounts. Luckily, permission are set so that these accounts cannot post in the site forums, but I do not know if there could be other side effects of all these accounts.

I certainly am having a much harder time managing the accounts portion of the website with so many entries.

Is there a way to delete these accounts in a more rapid way? Like delete all accounts that have no IP address associated with them? Or delete accounts that have never logged on?

Is there a way to prevent these sign-ups altogether? Like a CAPTCHA or method other than email validation?

I wanted to have to avoid this for as long as possible, as it is an inconvenience to signups, but it looks as though I'll have to add a CAPTCHA to event signups as well.

It's all in the reflexes.
So far I haven't had a problem with event sign-ups, just account creations.

On my site, no one can sign-up for events or post anything unless they've been moved up a rank for just this reason.

I was just having a hard time managing the accounts with all the spam ones in there cluttering it up. And trying to delete like 1000 accounts one at a time is ridiculous, so there should be an option or something to do mass-deletes.

I'm sorry, when I said "signups" I meant "account creations" (as in someone signing up for your site). My mistake for the miscommunication.

As for mass deletes and spam account prevention, both are slated.
