Every single spam post is a member's first post. Isn't there any way in the forum settings to say "the first post of a member will be passed by a moderator before they're allowed to go up"? You've been saying that this is real people making the posts, and that they'll give up eventually. Well, it's been half a year where every time I open any board there's at least one spam thread. This is not rocket science. Every single other company out there with a board that I've seen manages to keep the spam count lower. This should not be so hard.
