    a few months ago i setup a phpbb forum and forgot all about it. well to my surprise, these are the current stats Total posts 72442 | Total topics 65620 | Total members 8511

    all are junk posts from bots, but my question is, is there anything interesting/useful I can do with all this data?

    You really need to promote that forum! I would love some more pr juice for my backlinks. :hijacked:

    Seriously, that data is useful for some folks

    If you manage things right, you can even make some cash from it.

    Pull out all the URLs they post and the anchor text. This will build a nice DB that will tell you for each URL what they're trying to rank for.

    I have a similar problem Total posts 15479 | Total topics 11126 | Total members 3702

    I too would be interested in learning what can be done with this kind of data.
