XF 1.5 Disallow URLs when registering

I am suddenly getting a lot of human spammers, adding a URl into the location box when registering.

Is there a way to disallow a URL in the location textbox and/or custom user fields, e.g. disallow http:// or www?

Thanks.

The website field is covered by the "Edit profile" permission, so you could remove that. But beyond that, there isn't really a way to block just URLs in those specific areas.

I have found that using an expression in custom user fields seems to work, but I imagine it isn'y possible to implement that in the default fields. Perhaps I should suggest it.
