Yep, I look after a number of forums for clients and it looks like we've all been hit at the same time. I'm keeping a close eye on the phpBB community for a fix as my work inbox is getting rammed with spam registrations!

Drives: it like he stole it
every new member seems to list interests as 'sex'.
Now I'm married I remember the word, just not sure the meaning.
So is there any way we can filter out these undesirable people intent on spreading carnal lust on this respectable forum?

Are they all getting 'approved' automatically? Anyway of putting in one of those verification input things?
