What a great PHPBB. Fantastic topic and also NO SPAM. Is there someone in charge of blocking spammers that could advise me of how to keep spam off my board?
All the best,

i wrote a php script that shows me the last 100 registrations with email addresses and websites..
it colors the rows differently depending on who's successfully activated their account and show's the # of posts of a member to.
the bottom line is that it's easy to go to that page once a day to see who's registered and not activated their account immediately. i can normally safely delete those accounts right away using the checkbox at the right of the row. i review the accounts who have activated and delete the obviously spam accounts too. takes me about 30 seconds a day to deal with all spam.
deleting a record with this script pulls their messages from the database too. normally it works pretty well, until i delete a real account from time to time. :-( (sorry guys)
if you'd like this script, PM me.
