At the last place I used to frequent, they were plagued with porn spam bots and they couldn't work out how to stop them posting. The board was flooded with the stuff

The board is not being maintained as it was, probably due to the move over or else they would have been stopped more or less as soon as they appeared.

At least not many get as far as actually posting though

The majority of the spambots you see in the memberlist will never get to post anything here - they get as far as registering, which we can't stop them doing, but they never pass the email verification process so they can't actually post. James has a script that cleans them up every now and then, so nothing to worry about.
