    Probably looking for a solution as I was. Unfortunately I haven't really found anything yet... It's pretty bad though. He's complaining about it here likely because he learned about the blackhat forum spamming software on here.

    Its all the Power of Xrumer 7 ReCaptcha Breaking!

    It will be no Surprise for me when you get 1000s of New Registrations from next month as your url will be passed on to few hundred Xrumer users who are all blasting 24/7

    hold new members for approval and check their IPs - pretty easy to spot legit memebers and once your board grows traffic, get moderation

    Those forums will be destroyed by spam
