I deleted most of the messages but can't block or prevent them with my rights. Also, for some reason, some of the posts wont delete.

Should be taken care of now... If you need to get ahold of me in a hurry, just send me an e-mail or PM, either way I get an email notification.

Although the spam is a pain in the ass I did get some new ideas what to do in the back of the FS with the seats folded down! :lol:

All cleaned up. Hopefully they're gone for a while again :-) It's hard to stop them, the most effective way to stop them is to manually approve all new members and/or posts and that's just not that feasible.

Check PHPbb's site for updates, if available, download them and upgrade the site to the latest version. Until you do (and keep on top of it) the spammers will continue. Since PHPbb is free, its also free for retards to build spam bot programs to infiltrate and annoy.

The alternative to this is spending the money on Vb, its well worth it IMO.
