As you may have noticed, there has been some spammers on the board.
I was just saying to someone at work this week that the registration process these days is great at stopping spam bots from registering.
Well, something happened and a LOT of PHPBB boards like this one have been inundated with Russian crap. Some a LOT worse that what has happened here.
I'm not sure how they did it, but I've changed the registration questions to see how that goes.
