DAMN!

They don't waste any time in getting in do they. :evil:

I need to upgrade to phpBB3. Anyone here good with this kind of thing? I'm still learning. :lol:

Well, I figured out how to delete them at least. Now I need to upgrade to the newest version and hopefully not lose the board. :lol:

They sure are. :lol:

I'm going to upgrade to phpBB version three and add a mod to help keep them out. More work for me. :lol:

In the mean time, I'm having fun changing their name to spam bot.

Lord Ali,

Thanks for the suggestion but after upgrading to phpbb3, I haven't had a single spam bot problem.
