I have a similar forum to this one (phpBB format) and also had problems with spammers. One idea that worked for me was to set the options so I had to personally approve of all new accounts.

It was frustrating it had to come to that but I made an announcement that all new members had to be approved first and usually it's possible to tell who's a spammer and who's not by name alone.

Another idea, perhaps already investigated.

If the spammers are mostly coming from one IP address, that IP can be blocked, and the spammers will no longer be able to reach the forum.

But before we do that, I do wish someone would tell us whether Tolle has ever had sex with Britney Spears. Isn't this an important point we've neglected to investigate??? :-)

I've tried that on mine but they just keep coming and coming.

It's possible. Britney evidently has become a Buddhist nun so maybe ol' Tolle had an impact on her.

I plan to learn PHP and implement a custom modification to the registration forms.
