ok i think it time to put an end the spambots ok try this
http://www.matthewleverton.com/howto/phpBB2-captcha.html
or something like
-Image verification and email confirmation will stop the vast majority of automated registrations and bot postings.
-Swear filters are good if the same offenders keep coming back - filter URLs, site names, etc.
-IP blocking is worth a try, but a serious spammer will get around that.
-tighten up your flood control settings to limit the number of messages a bot can post.
-if you haven't done so, be sure you have a "report" link in each message or thread so members can let mods/admins know when they spot spam
-use mass pruning/deletion for quick cleanup.
-check the IPs used to post, and document the spam to the ISP or institution if you see any kind of pattern.
ANY ONE WHO GOT AN IDEA ON HOW TO STOP SPAM BOTS PLEASE POST!

Advanced bot technology has allowed bots to read a captcha it take alot of coding but it can be done and theres a bunch of them out there. also if the bots are able to post in the admin only area as a guest they probaly can easyly work around those security messures

Thong. Please do not post something that makes no since or does not help or do anything at all on the forums. It takes up space. Also. Watch your language. O_O Thank you.
