I'm really starting to get the impression this "spam" isn't by accident, but some malicious Amiga user who doesn't like AROS.

It would be great if someone would log the IP addresses, etc, of the person(s) creating the accounts.

It might also be worth creating some obfuscated code in the website that can access an address without being mangled by a proxy - so we can check the real identity of the purpotrator.

I doubt that, or if it is, there are definitely more disgruntled amiga user, since I definitely notice differences between spam accounts.

The location of the IP of the spam you replied to was one of the Netherlands, that is assigned to a Russian hosting company. With a squid proxy server listening on port 80 5555 7777 and 55555. And a deserted apache server on port 8080.

But the spamming is getting really frequent now. I've block quite a few e-mail hosts that have been used for spamming and isn't used for legitimate mail.

Most of these accounts are very easy to detect before they even posted something. So I could quite easily block them out automagically; I've just been too lazy to do it. But now it's getting to a point where I'm deleting around 30 spam accounts a day, and like 3-5spam messages daily. So I'll find a more permanent solution.
