I haven't been here in awhile. All I see are Bot Posts.
That sucks.

Save Dubr, please!

They should slow down, I deleted as many bogus accounts as I could find and also disabled user registration

I've had great success in keeping bots out of my own family-oriented phpbb board by using the "Q&A" plugin in the "Spambot countermeasures" section of the administrator's control panel. All you have to do is find a suitable question for potential users to answer easily; I haven't had a single spambot get through since I enabled it on my forum. IIRC, the use of the current layout here was necessitated by the switch to phpbb3, which incorporates the Q&A plugin.

Now if I could only get the septuagenarians in my family to adopt this newfangled "forum" shit instead of the crap mailing list we use now.
