Your phpBB forum is going to commit suicide because of spam. Do you want to prevent it? Then this article is for you. Read it, follow the guidelines, enjoy and say thanks.
Do you want 100% protection? Hujushki! It's impossible. But, luckily, you don't need it. Being protected more than average is enough. If spammers can't spam to your forum, they won't investigate why, they'll just skip you.
