Ever since the hacking I've noticed numerous 'new' members with nonsensical names and profiles. Who are these people registering and what do they want?

Such attempts at registering are nothing new, they occurred under the old system as well. Moderators could delete such accounts outright under the old system, but it seems that disabling them is the only option currently available. :(

 

If any such "members" were to attempt posting, such posts would be immediately deleted, and the spammer's account disabled.

Are you saying that there's people out there that actually have nothing better to do than waste their time and invent screennames and passwords and even profiles because they have no life or at the very least bored beyond belief?

They're probably not actual people, but something called bots. Others here who are more computer-literate could explain it better than I could.
