NiHaoMike:
How about modify the policy so that the email and IP addresses of spammers get published when caught? Let the spammers spam each other.

Whenever I find somebody who smells like spam... I verify his IP address on that list and if he is guilty, I ban him.

There must be some SMF add-on which consults that spam list every once in a while. When you ban somebody, his IP gets automatically inserted to the black list.

I don't verify, I just kill'em!

I wish it worked like the Akismet plugin for Wordpress. I'm now getting over 3000 attempted spam comments a month on my wordpress blog, but Akismet stats show it has caught 99.845% of them!
