I think I've deleted them all now.

It's been a problem with this forums software for ages now that vulnerabilities exits that spammers exploit, seems there's been a massive increase in forums and email spam in last couple of weeks now.

Personally, have been deleting the posts but due to me not being able to login properly from time to time I cannot access the Admin Panel to log the I.P. addresses of those SPAM BOTS.

Ali Bhai .. something I use at my forum as a requirement is to enter a specific string (like "I am a robot" or 2+2= and user must enter "4" otherwise registration cannot be done. This has helped me out greatly. You probably already know what I am talking about as you have much more experience :)
