    Hey,

    what's up with this spam postings here? I constantly receive notification e-mails about new posts and all I see is spam spam and again spam! Perhaps you would better update this forum software or switch to a better one.

    Where are the moderators? Please look at all recent postings and delete those junk postings and of course the appropriate users.
    E.g.
    http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=10779
    http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=141968
    Spamming user, e.g.
    http://forum.parallels.com/search.php?searchid=1091347

    Check out Fassim Anti Forum Spam plug in for vbulletin. I tried all the captchas and a few other plug ins and they were either blocking to many legit members or just didn't work at all. Since I've installed fassim I'm down to like 2 users maybe a day that are spammers.. use to have over 50 easy.

    It allows you to :

    * Blocks known spammers via IP / Email.
    * Block countries and regions from registering to your forum.
    * Block anonymous proxies.
    * Block Top Spamming Domains.
    * Block Top Spamming ISP’s.
    * Scan Posts and allow you to moderate the posts
