I have not caught any in weeks, yet I still have spam registrations.
I can testify to this. I have read articles discussing the cyber sweatshops in parts of the world, who are dedicated to SPAM in various forms. I would not doubt that there is a fair amount of human registration going on, which makes automating spam removal very difficult, to say the least.
And I would definitely not be keen on some global IP banlist.
