I noticed that spammers have their names and "From" field the same. So I've added this string to the beginning of bb_func_regusr.php

if (isset($_POST['login']) && $_POST['login']==$_POST['from']) die ('Fatal error. U R a spammer.');

Do you mean robot spams or manual spammers?

I am sure this is only your private case. Technically it is possible to send any value of any field, so your solution would be broken in 2 secs ;-)
