as far as I know there are no publicly viewable logs and phpbb has posts and replies not comments.

anyway, in your admin panel/ left side menu/ spambot counter measures.

I believe you also have to go to google and get some type of account or something to use it.

I would suggest you use the built in Q&A with one good question that can not be guessed or looked up in google and is not a multiple choice question or a what color is question or a math question etc.
if you get the right question it will stop 99.99% of the spam bots.

Google recaptcha can't stop bots. They are creating accounts easily.

that is very doubtful.

you are probably having humans registering and posting spam.

Maybe, after I changed my Q&A for a while with new recaptcha several new users with strange names appeared and start to write in foreign languages. Deleted them and changed to Q&A

I have not seen any problems with "spam" registrations since I moved over to Google reCaptcha

You don't need to install that. reCAPTCHA is built in to 3.2.

Then again, with the various news articles I've seen out there, it could likely end up being an AI Algorithm with a possible artificial neuron network and something like a quantum processor that could be showing up to create bot accounts on your forum.

yes Erick, but it could also be your cousin from the 15th planet coming here and breaking into our boards to steal the cheese / :D

and, I doubt that those pesky rodents would have the knowhow or the materials to develop those quantum processors.

luck,
