Default spam, spam, spam!!!

Hello

Are there any moderators on the forum?
I'm following a topic that is full of spam. I keep "reporting" but no action is taken:

Hehe, I made a similar post here last week, however it got deleted again.
The spam is really getting out of hand, a more serious fix is needed than to just remove the spam posts.
I just hope noone clicks on the links of those spam threads, I'd bet it's not just "harmless" spam.

Any way to keep those spammers from registering over and over?

a solution I use on my forum is a simple question when you register, like "if you have 2 E90 and 1 E60, how many cars do you have". Bots can't answer this, only human spammers

Well currently this board is drowning in spam.
How about close down registration, get rid of the spam users, clean up and open up registration again when a new registration procedure has been installed?

Just watching this will not stop the spam and in long term kill the board.

These spam bots have really bad grammar and spelling.
