There needs to be a verification process similar to like what ADVrider has, where the membership must be approved before allowing you to be a member.

We took off the 50 post limit for posting links with the intent of changing it to 5 or ten but it's now zero.

There has been a large influx of Vietnamese spam on another forum. It's funny to me, but I can see it being a pita for admins.

I make use of this resource: Stop Forum Spam

There are plugins for various forum software/versions that automate the process of blocking spammers

Stop Forum Spam

I add the username, email and IP address of every spammer I ban on the site I help moderate, and compare those of new members to their database to decide whether to accept of deny them forum access.
