I plan to really get into the PHPBB code and trying to stop these spammers early next month after I move. I am really sick of deleting and banning people and I know most members dont even see the half of it because most post are pending approval but there is a lot and it needs to be delt with in a very heavy handed manner since everything else we have tried has only slowed down the spamming but it hasnt solved it completely yet. If you see these post please dont think the forums have gone to shit and that we dont care any more what happens on here. We are working daily to keep the spam post from cluttering up the forums and the problem is some sort of security loophole in the PHPBB code itself so it very hard for us to solve without really getting into the PHP code and none of us here are professional PHP / Web designers.
I just thoguht Id get that out there as something to look forward to
