A growing problem; I can provide screenshots if needed.

Recently, some very suspicious usernames have been registering, most of whom have no information listed except for a website that usually relates to their username.
Ex. Hotel For Sale Sri Lanka- it has a website on it's profile called "Hotels-invest"
Online Documents Management- it has a related site
Shipping Agency... You get the point.

I can provide screenshots and more examples if needed. Is there a way to rectify this problem?

A bunch of the spam-bots were in the validation que. So I deleted/denied them.

There are some that still got through, though. I'm not sure I can block them once they do, but LizardBite can.

They're starting to get worse... I'd guess there are at least 50 registered, although they're not actually doing anything yet.
