Last week has some new users signup to my site and send alot of unproprate Private Message to the users of the site. there are around 2000 registered users in the site, they has only send around 200 PM on that day and not login again after that.

I have protector installed, captcha enable and need to verify by email during signing up an account.

so you think this is a job of a spammer or spambot?

200 PM messages in a day? Spambot for sure.

If it were me, I'd delete the accounts and ban the email address/domain to prevent re-registration.

I'd also make sure that users are not allowed to change their email address - this will allow you to see the addresses/domains used at the time of account registration.

spambot for sure!
