Post Kill Kill Kill The Spammers
I added another Anit-spam measure, and I'm gonna dig through the mod section on the phpbb site later today to see if there are any other anti-spam mods. So far I have added two MODs, and they've blocked considerable amounts of spam (Yes, it can be worse).

Fuckin' spammers.

I seem to have killed the spam, but they are still registering names (which is pretty weird). At least I can nuke the names pretty easily.

One of the mods I installed will not allow you to enter a website on your profile until you've made 5 posts, which seems to be what a lot of the spam bots are doing, just giving a link to their crap site. I also changed the COPPA values, to fuck with the spam bots (who make direct requests to the PHP without actually visiting the site).

Now I just got to get them to stop registering names such as "phentermine". :)

I added a captcha (where you have to confirm a code/image in order to register) mod to the board, and hopefully that will stem the numerous bogus registrations that have been popping up (even though the other mods I had installed had prevented them from posting them, I was getting tired of seeing new user names such as "SexyBarBabe", "HappyGunsGuy" and "RxPhentermineDr".

If anyone experiences issues with the Captcha function, as always, let me know.
