Hmmm, what about disabling clickable links from signatures?

Something like: "Nope, you are trying to place a link in your sig, but we don't allow that. Spam prevention. We hope you understand."

I am in favor of both Amit Tai's and Ethan's ideas:
1) Restricting new forum registration to folks with UW email addresses (and then they can change them themselves);
2) Disabling hyperlinks from signature lines.

I don't think there would be many cases where an exception to Item 1 would arise since probably 99% of legit users have UW email addresses.

If Option 1 isn't approved, I think Option 2 might be a really quick and easy interim "patch" to the problem that might discourage spammers and non-UW climbing related posts.

Would any of these suggestions have prevented the most recent one? As Amit tai said, getting very clever.

Can you set the auto register to UW addresses only, and put a note on the registration page to email a specific address to request an account if you don't have a UW account?

I dislike using only UW emails to register, partly because personally I joined the club before I was affiliated with UW and would not want to limit membership for others since we aren't really a closed club considering alumni and the few non-UW folks. I think refusing to approve user names who do not use a legit name is a good way to go, in addition to the no links in signature.

well, we could also say "auto-approve if a UW address or, if you don't have one that's fine, but we've been having trouble with spammers, so please write a paragraph introducing yourself and then we'll approve you manually".

Auto-approve for UW addresses and manual approval (with explanatory paragraph) sounds very reasonable.
