Yep,

I encountered a couple of those the past week. I still think some sort of
verification prior to posting (send email to address, click link to verify)

They where just on Holiday trying to work out a new way not to get caught.

Seems to have been a lot over the past couple of days with each new account making one post and then disappearing. I've only seen a few that make more than 1 post of the Crap.
