If you use that service how did you get over 280 pages of people waiting for approval?  I have looked into stopforumspam but still choose to take care of approvals myself.  I get about 10 a week so it is a small number, it seems about half are spammers trying to get in.

Good luck

Iím just that good ;)

Actually I just scrolled thru page after page checking usernames and email accounts, the legit looking ones I then opened in a new tab and checked to see if they listed a brand and model on their app, if they did I then checked the IPís. If all was good from there I approved them and sent an email. If the username/email looked like a hyperactive 5 year old on crack just beat on the keyboard to make a name/email up I skipped em altogether.

Another way is I used the ďcheck for DuplicatesĒ function, one user might have up to 500 usernames all tied to the same IP or email. Would have liked to have high enough access to just delete all of those.
