Spam is driving me insane

Post by greens85 » Mon Feb 07, 2011 3:17 pm

Hi all,

I am running the latest version of PHPBB but I am constantly being spammed and it's driving me insane! I have tried each one of the spam counter measures through the ACP but spam still manages to get through.

Can anyone with a bit more knowledge recommend me a way of cutting out this spam as it is ruining the board!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Greens85

I don't have any problem with the Q&A captcha.
Just don't be obvious and ask what is 2+2 or what colour is the sky.

There's a long sticky topic at the top of the support forum for more info.
