Need some advice on running a forum. Have started a couple of phpbb in the past but given up fighting spam. Is there any decent ways to stop spam now? Anything like akismet? Can I stop link posting for certain users? I dont want to have to pre approve posts like wp comments. I'm looking to start a community forum, not for profit, not going to be able to put the hours in to police it. Ideally wanted to do phpbb to start as it's free but if vbulletin is the only way to go would buy that. Is it possible?
