Why would you want to have to approve more than 255 posts? Usually, your spammers will start spamming with the first few. Then you can delete or ban them.

What you want to do is to prevent the spammers from ever becoming members, or keep their post from ever appearing.

To do the first, see http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1861645

To do the second, enable the Newly registerd users group by setting the New member post limit to 1 in User registration settings.

If you make all members have VC for every post, pretty soon you will have no members.
