Today alone i had 228 spam posts. All porn, its getting on my nerves. Akismet or w/e is not for 1.6.

What can i do to reduce this??
I have done the following:

- Installed reCAPTCHA II
- Banned all .cn and .ru email addresses.

I have next to no spam, any spam I do get is humans who spam links to gucci bags. Not a lot I can do about those.
You can try using Fassim Anti Spam. I just submitted the plugin to mybb, I'm awaiting approval, but you can download it off the site. I use it on all my forums, it was created when I had a lot of vb forums and works great...especially for modertating posts, it doesn't moderate posts in the mybb plug yet. I started using mybb so I ported a copy over. It blocks emails/ips and you can block countries.

I don't think they're going to tell us much about any new measures, seems to be all top secret

Stop Forum Spam Is a great plugin, they have a whole database and you can prevent spam by IP, Email, and username. But I would only use IP and E-Mail.
