    I was really struggling with spammers a few days ago, then I started to use stronger captcha. It finally got rid of spammers from my forum.

    What about you? How do you deal with spam?

    I have a CAPTCHA as well. Either the creator of these spam bots is getting smarter, or the CAPTCHAS just fail, as I continually have some spam bots that slip through. I mainly just ban them all, sometimes by IP if the IPs get too similar.

    I visit my forums regularly so I am able to catch the spam posters rather quickly. I simply lock the thread and move them to what I call the recycling bin.

    Put a Captcha Verification register forum thru email activation :)
