In regards to spam
#18
Here is another tip.

At the bottom of your forum you will see Forum Statistics. Select Who's Online and [Complete List].

You should be able to see everyone viewing your forum. Non members or members not logged in will show as Guest and the IP is located just below the Guest name. Copy the IP and paste into IP search engine such as WhatIP. Look at the Hostname. You can often see whether it is a bot or not here. Example from this morning on my forum: Guest (IP 66.249.72.95). I noticed the guest was looking at forum statistics so I did IP search and here is what came up under Hostname: crawl-66-249-72-95.googlebot.com Now you can block if you wish.
