Sure, most of the Chinese bots we are inundated with at the moment are easy to spot (we're actually blocking a lot of them as they register, before they even post the spam) but there's still a lot of subtle stuff getting through, some of which is performed by humans rather that bots.

Mishy has blocked several Chinese IP ranges to try and reduce the flow but at the moment, I must admit it feels like we are fighting a losing battle.
