My drupal site has a textarea field in the new user application that asks for the new user to explain what their interest is in wanting to join the site. Some sort of machine bot is sending a dozen or so requests for accounts daily. Characteristically, this machine bot is putting two random characters into this "interest" field. Therefore, I know that any account with only 2 characters in this particular field is this computer bot since no answer to this question on the application could be acceptable with only two characters.
I would like to know if there is a way that drupal can delete such accounts with only two characters in this particular field automatically by using a set criteria (e.g. a field containing only two characters). How could I go about this? It would be ideal to have Drupal NOT send an email message at all that a new user has signed up when this occurs, but if that is not possible, then can I do something to automatically delete such an application when the length of the field is only two characters? I am looking for a Drupal method of doing this rather than a cron job method of doing this.
I realize that one could just use a field validation to start with but that won't answer the question: Can Drupal actually use some sort of specific field rule (e.g. a certain field must have more than x number of characters) to delete accounts automatically so they wouldn't have to be deleted manually and constantly by the administrator.
