Check your forums for this user.

So I had a rather odd username, martin1234php, sign up. I checked the profile, and naturally not a single one of the profile fields is filled in correctly, and it's a gmail account.

So I Googled it, and there's ten pages of his username on forums all over the place.

59.92.141.36 is the IP he signed up to my site with. Either a really bad spammer, or a bot looking to harvest email addresses.

Just a heads up.

Edit: Also, I'm assuming that "Asia Pacific Network Information Centre" is an overseas proxy, because I'd say a good 50% of the nonsense accounts that sign up on my site resolve to that IP if I throw it at the lookup tool at www.arin.net.

"Asia Pacific Network Information Centre" is to asia(and the surrounding region) as arin is to the US. It's telling you to use apnic to get more information on that ip.

He signed up on mine with the ip 59.92.164.242.

I did think it was an odd username.

He could just be an average user... I didn't see any posts with spam of the results I looked over. I'm sure your name will show on forums for 10 pages of google search results. :P

Yeah, I thought it was odd when I seen php at the end of the name. For a split second I though maybe the reg script was borked and then said to myself, it's a spambot or either a harvest bot for people to get around registering.

It was on two of my biggest forums. Banned it since it was obvious what it was.
