And even though nowadays spam is created by real humans instead of bots, there are ways to reduce it. I recommend installing these plugins:

http://mods.mybb.com/view/stopforumspam-com-for-mybb
http://mods.mybb.com/view/fassim-anitspam
http://mods.mybb.com/view/recaptcha
http://mods.mybb.com/view/registration-s...y-question

These should help stop most spammers during registration. But for those who get in, you can use these:

http://mods.mybb.com/view/goodbye-spammer
http://mods.mybb.com/view/extra-forum-permissions (use the "Can post links?" permission on new users)
http://mybbhacks.zingaburga.com/showthread.php?tid=356

Those last two are, in my opinion, the best protection you can take against spammers. Why? Spammers usually register with the goal to spam your forum with links to their client's websites. By stopping them from using links in signatures, profiles and posts, they will probably leave and never come back. Who cares about a few nonsense posts, it's free content. At least I know they failed their mission!

No longer involved in the MyBB project.
