Default Private messages from bots?

Just thought I'd say that I've been getting junk messages on the forum from bots. I only got 2 of them with links to random sites, but it seems that even though the forum requires manual activation, the bots can still advertise using PM system. I don't really have a solution to this or anything like that, since regular users need access to the PM system to get activated, but I thought I'd let you know.

Yeah I keep getting those same random messages. Most are not even English.
