This evening I've been cleaning out various posts and spammer accounts, however this is only a temp solution, tomorrow night I plan a more radical solution;
- Upgrade the forum software to the latest version. Unfortunately this is not as straightforward as it should be due to the custom modifications I've done to the forum that intergrate the toolbar registration with the forum software.
- Once that is done, any posts by a new user will go onto a moderation queue before being visible to other users.
So tomorrow evening/night the forum will be down whilst I work on it.
