Spam is still coming. It is strange, I've never seen a forum with so much spam, even those badly moderated/administered.
Mybe this one is an important one, but is there at least a way to remove spam threads as soon as they are marked?

Ok, what about deleting the threads here? those spammers only get an higher pagerank with this forum ....

this forum ranks very very high with many keywords on google i have noticed. They have bots now that can break captcha and automate registration and I have seen a lot of forums getting spammed by these bots. What you do is blacklist the proxies they are using they get them from lists, anyways you can block about 60% of the spam by blacklisting the proxies but not all of it.

I think the system used in rapidshare is quite effective, it is an improved captcha where you are asked to write the letters marked with the image of a cat.

Yes! I haven't actually seen this, but anything that involves a cat MUST be secure! =^_^=
