Have any of you webmasters ever got to the stage you've either been tempted, or in fact have actually done it - locked your forum to stop new members (spambots included), from registering and spamming your board?

I have had this problem before the advent of all the new smart spam detection software like reCaptcha etc.

This days (with vBulletin anyway) you can easily foil spammers
