    My site is running joomla with the kunena forum.. I Have a captcha for the registration but it's not slowing them down. This is a game news website and their spamming my the forum with porn. These bots are posting 50 or more anal bustin pics a day.

    any idea how i can stop this or at least slow it down? captcha isn't helping.

    Modify your main footprints & "leave comment" & such stuff, replace them with some original stuff that won't be spammer's target.
    Change registration file name to something bizzare & modify the rest of the code accordingly.
