They use throwaway accounts (broken into account, fraudulent payment, trial, etc.) and often access them via proxies. So going after individual accounts or IP addresses isn't very effective. We've done a lot with the spam filter recently (you've probably noticed the weird text if you've been in one of the channels that gets more spam traffic), but this continues to be a back and forth battle and probably will be as long as Rift is successful.
