You have my sincere apologies. I'm working on removing bots. Even though we have a spam prevention add-on, it happened because I disabled captcha because of how well the add-on was working. I have now since disabled captcha and I will proceed to mark his account as spam and delete it after I send you this message. You are welcome here anytime you want and that should put an end to the spam.

Thanks, it is OK, I understand the problem with those spammers. I am setting up a forum myself and have had a similar problem. I was thinking of requiring new members to post at least 3 messages in the forums before they are allowed to private message. I also have an anti spam addon but I think that some of it is not from robots but put in by hand. My other option would be to charge $5 per registration but because I am just starting out it is difficult.

Your forum looks really good and I like your enthusiasm and positive attitude. Wishing you great success.

Thank you @virtue121

You should see the forum thrive in the coming days. Your welcome to return anytime you want and I want you to know that the spam has come to a stop after resetting up captcha and combining it with the spam prevention add-on I had.
