    I was wondering if anyone had some suggestionsexperiences with forums… basically a sort of spam filter and a filter against idiots signing up who want to post spam. You know, having explicit links posted to a forum that is designed for kids isn’t too cool. :

    Not a technological solution but how about enabling other people to moderate your forum such as regular users as a way of "self-policing"?

    There should be a set up option in the admin about links and words that you can moderate.

    I think Vanilla (and maybe phpBB) has the option to censor certain letters in words but allow you to still see the word (if you know what i mean).

    from the phpBB general guide http://www.phpbb.com/support/documentation/3.0/adminguide/acp_general.php
    tells you how to check the user IP against the DNS blacklist etc might stop them at the front door.

    Not sure as it has been a while since i played admin on forums
