Ban user at registration based upon profile field

I have been getting about 20+ spam registrations a day. I tried blocking the emails they are coming from but they have been using aol, hotmail and many others. The one common thing is the biography always says "Man". Is there a way to ban/delete any registrations matching that field?

It's probably automated. Most all spam is. Stop the bots, stop most of the spam. This is by far the best Mod ever for doing that:

I have something like, 1,400 emails about bots caught just since late October using that Mod. Best anti-spam Mod ever.
