Tim: I am the ADMIN for our Corvette Club's forum, and, due to span registrations, I have had to actually make it mandatory that I approve all new registrations. There is either new software or people so darn persistant that they are taking the time to register and log onto forums which are even using the random coding security. I delete about 10-15 bogus entries per day. It doesn't even work to block their IP, because they have access to hundreds of IP addresses. If you find a good way to stop this, please let me know. I am also using phpBB for a forum program.
