Spam user joins (shows up in Activity list)*

edited March 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I have the latest vanilla running with the join-via-twitter/google/etc plugins all running.

Every day in my activity i see a lot of lines like "itzThustysfugsgmann joined." .... a lot of take user joins. no spam posts so thats good but its clutering up the user list and the activity log.

any advice?
