The spam is getting really bad, some black hats must have released a tool for all the script kiddies to attack phpBB boards. I am deleting at least three a day. Originally I got rid of it by requiring registration. The next step would probably be to require a pattern matching tool on the registration where you have to type in from characters (you know what I'm talking about, I can't think of what it's called). Before I spend any more time fiddling with and configuring phpBB I think I should take the plunge and finally convert to vBulletin. Last chance, any votes yea or nay?
