    Forum package/program

    Good evening:

    Haven't been on line recently but I would like some advice concerning a forum program.

    I am using phpBB which is subject to continual SPAM which is slowly driving me nuts. I have it set so that a new member needs to be approved by Admin which is inconvenitent to new members as they have to wait before posting and I believe that they don't bother.

    Does any one know any program that might be better at avoiding or discouraging SPAM Bots?

    Cheers

    Do you know PHP?...If not, do you know anyone who does?

    A few months ago, I was able to get past this by adding a customized question in the registration process. The question requires text be entered for the answer. "What is fourteen minus seven?". They have to type out "seven". I can change this at anytime.

    Since then, I have seen zero SPAM bots registering.
