Any news on this?
Seems the spammers are quite active again.
In another forum-site (TotalCommander: http://www.ghisler.ch/board/index.php?language=english
) I have seen a "trick", where the first sub-forum would be a honeypot (spam trap). Any user posting into that would be automatically be deleted. Apparently a lot of spammers simply take the first (sub)forum without any check. The forum description contains a big warning to prevent real users to accidently post there.
It did reduce the number of spams there drastically. So maybe that is an option for dbForums as well.
