    Have a forum running on PHPbb. Its only been running a few months and gets probably 50 posts per day of spam - have it set so people can only get posts auto approved if they already have a successfully approved post. So posts only sit in the medration queue, but its becoming impossible to keep up with deleting them.

    Are there any good addons for PHPbb that stop this?

    just use post limit... set a maximum post limit as your wish , to prevent spamming use manual activation of membership with setup a test exam post ,
