Yes, spammers are always a problem. Would it be possible for you to
disable 'self join' then manually create accounts for people who want
to join,
via the admin CP and "Create New User" ?

They could email you or ask on this list ?

It may seem like a lot of extra work, but I doubt the Forum will have
thousands of members ?

Adversely, when a spambot hits, you wake up one morning and find
*hundreds* of junk posts and topics which take *days* to manually
remove, or they render the forum impossible to navigate, and therefore
useless.

Generally one only has a small spambot free window of about a week
before they hit new forums, which is useful to get the 'regulars' self
joined, but once the spambots hit, they won't stop.

At least myBB has a manual "Create New User" facility to combat this problem.

Cheers
Terry
