Yes, the spam has been on the increase as of late. I plan on upgrading the forum, and installing the latest anti-spam mods at the same time, hopefully soon. I could change the forum registration, so each account has to be authorized, however, then that requires someone to always be checking email and performing an action. Meanwhile the user who just wanted to post their lost disc, has to wait. Not ideal. I'm sure the newer version of the forum & mods will help, since we had a really good streak going there of no spam, after my last upgrades.
