Full Version: The Russians have heavily spamed my mybb forum

My forum gets tones of spam post from these Russians with invalid email addresses. The worse is that their post are highly inappropriate and irrelevant to my niche. I set my registration procedure in the setting to confirm email before a new member can post. How do I stop this?

Email verification is not enough, you need to set Admin activation.
If you don't expect legitimate signups from Russia, ban all Russian IPs from registering.
Set the forum security questions to something that only your typical user would know the answer to.
If that's not enough, then start banning the ip addresses.
You may be able to use something like CloudFlare to filter countries.
