I just installed something on my own forum that stopped them dead in their tracks.

Don't know how long it'll last though before having to install something else.

Indeed, it seems like there was a breakthrough in captcha recognition, everyone seems to be getting more spambots.

I think the best way is to add a custom field to the registration. Say for example, tell the registrant to find a certain code on the main site to copy and paste into a field.

Updating CAPTCHA isn't going to help for long because all phpBB boards would be using the same system, and that's exactly what the spam bots are going to be looking to beat.

That's a good idea actually.

Here's a wonderful idea from those wankers at Youchew:
Make it so registered users can't post. Make a usergroup that anyone can join, and grant them the ability to post when they join.
Spambots lack the ability to think freely [obviously], which in turn means they can't join the group. If you put a notice on the Front page of the forum, the older members will know to change to that usergroup, and everything will return to normal.

Problem solved.

That also sounds like a good idea. :)
I'm gonna go with trying to mod first though. See if that works.

Edit: Mod installed and configured.
