What is the point of this?

Some human or bot created about 200 users yesterday, but I don't/didnt' see any signs of SPAM.  Why bother?  Proof of concept for a nasty attack later?  Hmm...?

I guess if nothing else whomever/whatever did this just added a few more unique words to the site.

OK - I think I need to get off my butt and install that CAPTCHA.

I just briefly glanced at the long string of activity and thought that somehow arachnode had gotten slashdotted or farked or something.

Would that be nice?  Although I'm quite certain that a link from either of those two sources would bring down the WebServer.  :)

Nah, it looks like some spam-bot . Maybe even XRumer? If you can put links in your profile and in comments and everywhere else and they are "dofollow" types  that's a tidbit for SEO or linkspamming purposes, since arachnode.net has a nice PageRank. You'd better use some good CAPTCHA and change all links to "nofollow" if the script has that feature...:)

I have some CAPTCHA code that I should probably implement.

At least those users didn't try and implement the obnoxious full-screen <div> that another spammer did.  But, hey, at least this site is just popular enough for someone to care.  :)
