I actually did something similar before I managed to programatically suppress the spammers (for now). I required user activation of accounts. If a user did not activate their account within a given period of time, they were deleted. Some users like to register and browse for a while either without posting or before working up the "courage" to post.
Of course, until I modded my forums to prevent entering a website upon initial registration, I was always on guard for those porn and poker sites. I'd strongly suggest the mod. I'll see if I have some time to look it up this evening.
